Watermelon Salad With Goat Cheese And Pistachios Inspired By Crate & Barrel Towel


It's Monday! Are you ready for something sweet, savory, spicy and utterly delicious!? Then you must make my Watermelon Salad With Goat Cheese And Pistachios. This salad started with an adorable watermelon towel I bought at Crate & Barrel {no, this is not a sponsored post: I simply love that store and have too many of their items in my condo!}.

Once I purchased the towel yesterday, my typical watermelon craving kicked into a higher gear! So, I went to the store and picked up a wedge of watermelon {a large watermelon is too heavy to carry home} and a few other random items: pistachios and cilantro.

Once home, I was going to eat watermelon as is, but then decided to make a salad. This is similar to the popular watermelon, feta and basil salad, but I used goat cheese and cilantro and added a few other fun ingredients.


Watermelon Salad With Goat Cheese And Pistachios Salad

Ingredients {decide on your own quantities!}
watermelon cubes
crumbled goat cheese
pistachios {I used these and they are incredibly addictive!}
cilantro
sumac
olive oil

Directions
1. Combine all ingredients. Eat. {For the sake of photos, I made a composed salad by layering ingredients.}

The sweetness of the watermelon was a great contrast to the creamy slightly salty goat cheese, crunchy pistachios and the lemony notes of sumac. This would be incredible on a hot summer day!

By the way, did you notice my photos becoming blurry? I recently stopped using a tripod and it appears that it was a mistake ;(
