TIP OF THE DAY: Watermelon In Salad

Watermelon makes a salad more refreshing.

We love watermelon salad in the summer: greens or herbs with watermelon and, sometimes, feta or goat cheese.

We’ve published several watermelon salad recipes in summers past (links are at the bottom of this article). This year we present Watermelon, Tomato and Wisconsin Burrata Salad.

Burrata is a heavenly cheese: a ball of mozzarella stuffed with ricotta. Trader Joe’s is our go-to source for great burrata. If you can’t find it, use sliced mozzarella, feta or goat cheese.

This recipe was developed by Chef Brandt Evans for the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (EatWisconsinCheese.com). It serves 6-8.

Try this recipe or use your creativity to invent your own watermelon salad recipe.
