Strawberry- Melon Salad w/ Watermelon Vinaigrette

Perfect for end of summer strawberries and melons, this blend of fruits and mixed greens is quite delicious with chunks of gorgonzola and a watermelon vinaigrette.


  • 1/2 cup watermelon chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons champagne vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups chopped fresh cantaloupe
  • 2 cups chopped fresh watermelon
  • 6 cups mixed greens
  • 3/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola


  1. Prepare vinaigrette: Combine all ingredients in a blender or mini food processor and pulse until well combined. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Toss strawberries and melon together in a medium bowl.
  3. To serve, divide green between 6 salad bowls. Top each with about 1 cup of fruit, and sprinkle with gorgonzola cheese. Drizzle each serving with watermelon vinaigrette.


*Try using other kinds of berries or melon too. *If you don’t care for gorgonzola, try subbing feta cheese (or leave out the cheese).
