Ok, I know I have been going overboard with the salads lately and I SWEAR this one is worth it. However, soon everything with pumpkin and apples so until that time happens I’m eating all the salads. Plus, who can resist a salad made with watermelon? Sweet and juicy and perfect for lunch or a simple side dish.

To be honest I made this salad, took a few pictures and then ate the WHOLE THING for lunch. Just me. In the kitchen. Devouring this salad like a woman who hadn’t seen food in weeks. So good. So worth it.

Plus I love this watermelon Greek salad recipe because it’s just a fun way to use watermelon. Normally in the summer I just slice watermelon up, sprinkle it with salt and devour. However, sometimes it’s fun to do something a little different. This salad is a little different and a whole lotta delicious.

And the whole watermelon and feta combo is super rad. Yes, I just used the word rad. I’m taking this blog all the way back to the late 80’s. That time in my life when I was a little kid and my only summertime worries was what flavor of Kool-Aid to make (I LOVED Great Bluedini) and whether or not my brother would let me snag the remote so I could watch a little The World of David the Gnome. If you never had the pleasure of watching that show you need to look it up on YouTube. It has gnomes that give each other Eskimo kisses and they ride on a fox throughout the forest. They are living their best gnome life.

    This looks truly divine!

    My husband is a huge beet fan, but I’m not yet — I love your addition of the truvia sweetner; maybe that’s what I’ve been missing all this time to get me to like beets!

    I’ve only recently become a huge beet fan. Now I can’t get enough of their earthy taste. Your beet gazpacho looks amazing and all your garnishes on top makes it look really, really pretty!

    First, I love saying the word gazpacho. Say it with me…. Gazpachooooo. Anyway, I’m in the “I heart beets forever and ever” camp, so this gazpacho is perfect. P.S. I find ripened beets less earthy and much sweeter. You know, for the beet haters. P.P.S. Gazpacho!!

    I am a soupaholic. When I was working in an office, they would callme soup girl because I had soup for lunch literally every day for about three months. So I totally get you. This gazpacho is so pretty! And I happen to love beets. So this is obviously happening.

    I’m with you on the soup thing…I have no problem eating it all year long. Well, as long as there is A/C. Because eating a hot soup on a hot summer day with no A/C is never fun:) Lovely soup, Brandy!!

    Oooooooooooo, I’m so intrigued by that honey/stevia combo!! I’ve never really LOVED stevia, but I think this blend might just be the key! Going to look for it at the grocery store! THANKS!!!
