1/2 watermelon (preferrably seedless)
2 avocados
Microgreens (or sprouts if you can't find them)
Extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Peach balsamic vinegar (can substitute regular balsamic)
Course sea salt


1. Pour peach balsamic into a small saucepan and simmer until reduced by half. Set aside to cool. (Peach balsamic tastes incredible with watermelon, but regular balsamic is fine if you can't find it)
2. Cut watermelon into cubes.
3. Remove pit from avocados and cut into cubes.
4. Place a handful of watermelon and avocado on plate and lightly mix together, making sure not to smoosh the avocado.
5. Place a handful of microgreens on top.
6. Lightly drizzle with olive oil over salad.
7. Lightly spoon balsamic glaze over salad.
8. Sprinkle coarse sea salt over salad and enjoy immediately.
Serves 4

Do you have a funny or interesting story about your recipe

Like most of my recipes, I came up with it when my kitchen was pretty empty. It was a hot Texas summer evening and I had a watermelon and some microgreens from my co-op. I also had a couple of avocados in the fridge. I grabbed my olive oil and peach balsamic that I get from my favorite farmers market vendor and my go-to celtic sea salt, and voila! Quick, easy, mouth-watering summer salad.
