Happy National Watermelon Day! To celebrate this refreshing, juicy summer fruit, I've got a super-easy salad recipe for you. Whether you're hosting friends for a summer soirée or you've been tasked with bringing a dish to a potluck, this low-effort appetizer is sure to impress.
The best part about this salad is the fun presentation. Instead of cutting the melon into cubes, as you would normally expect in a salad, you serve it in big triangular slices. You can choose to either pick it up and eat it like a pizza slice, or cut into it with a fork and knife — either way you can't go wrong!

What I also love about this salad is how simple and refined it is. The watermelon is topped with some cherry tomatoes, microgreens, crumbled blue cheese, fresh basil and oregano, and a flavorful orange-honey vinaigrette. Because everything is so balanced, not one ingredient overpowers the other.
But hurry! Before you know it, summer will be on its way out — so make this salad as much as you can before watermelon is replaced by apples at the store.
