In recent weeks, Kate Middleton has sent the internet into a frenzy — and no, it’s not because something juicy is going on with the royal family. While the Queen is busy looking for someone to open and operate her pub and restaurant, the Duchess of Cambridge has nabbed everyone’s attention with one of her favorite summer eats: watermelon salad.

This trendy salad packs a wonderful blend of creamy and crunchy textures that makes for a bowl full of deliciousness. And after coming across the recipe on @kalejunkie‘s Instagram page and realizing how easy it was, I knew I had to try it. So, without any hesitation, I went to my local market and began to make this come to life before completely kissing summer goodbye.

After adding those to your bowl of choice, you’ll then take olive oil, lime, apple cider vinegar, and a little salt and pepper to taste to add on top. Toss until coated and enjoy!
