Watermelon, Berry and Pistachio Salad


 Is there anything better than sunny and 75 weather? It almost doesn't feel real after our long winter. Feeling the warmth immediately makes me crave crisp, cold salads full of color and flavor. This salad is super simple, but looks beautiful (and tastes even better). Pair it with grilled chicken or fish and you have a yummy, nutrient-dense meal in no time.

1. Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a blender until smooth. Set aside. 

2. Place leafy greens in a large bowl and toss with half the vinaigrette. Transfer to a serving platter. 



3. Top greens with watermelon, strawberries, pistachios and cheese. Drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette and serve.
