Chopped romaine tossed with sweet, juicy watermelon, grilled shrimp and goat cheese and a golden balsamic vinaigrette – I’ll be making this salad all summer!!
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s so good I plan on making it again for dinner tonight so my husband gets to try it. I put this together in about 20 minutes, so it’s perfect for busy weeknights. The dressing is DEE-LICIOUS, I used DeLallo’s golden balsamic vinegar, which is made from white grapes rather than red and has a sweetly rich taste – it’s fabulous! They sell it at my local supermarket, or you can buy it online, but if you want to use regular balsamic, that would work fine too.
I love watermelon in my salad, mostly because I’m not much of a tomato lover. A few weeks ago while in the airport headed to Seaside Fl, I stopped to grab a bite at Marcus Samuelsson’s new restaurant Uptown Brasserie located at the new JFK Delta terminal 4, and ordered a salad just like this. Eating healthier while traveling is getting so much easier these days, a good thing although they also have a Shake Shack which after seeing the calories on the menu, I opted not to try.
Hope you enjoy this salad, I’ll be making this one all summer!
