This salad was a complete accident. I often combine gorgonzola and strawberries in a spinach salad, but when I pulled out the spinach it had gone icky overnight. Pulled out the green leaf lettuce and spied the chunk of seedless watermelon........the rest is history. Well, modest history.
I made a little more lemon and dill dressing, beefing up the lemon juice to counteract the sweetness of the watermelon, and added a few slivers of garlic. YUM!
Hope you enjoy this soon - it is delicious!
