This is a very healthy, yet delightfully different salad. A flavorful addition could be small slices of red onion.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine watermelon, spinach, and avocados together in a bowl.

  • Whisk walnut oil, olive oil, lime juice, and paprika together in a bowl; pour over watermelon mixture. Toss to coat.

Cook's Notes:

Shop for watermelon carefully. Old-fashioned seeded watermelons are best (and sweeter too!)

Add the avocados just before serving, as avocados get darker when exposed to air.

Smoked paprika can be used in place of sweet paprika, if desired.

A simple, flavorful and refreshing salad perfect for the warmer summer months. *Update* I used Tajin in place of the paprika and this recipe is even better. Read More
