Watermelon, Strawberry, and Feta Salad

6 years ago yesterday, Sue and I published our very first blog post. (See it here - The Adventure Begins) And now, 6 years and over 1,000 posts later, we are still happy to be here, sharing our recipes and adventures with you. 
It's hard to believe it's been that long. I guess it's true - time flies when you are having fun. We can't thank you, our readers, enough for all the support you have given us. You can still follow us on Facebook (HERE), Instagram (HERE), Twitter (HERE), and Pinterest (HERE) to see what we are up to when we are not on the blog. 
We decided to go with something simple yet beautiful for our blogiversary post. This watermelon, strawberry, and feta salad is ridiculously easy but I was quite surprised at how amazing it tastes. The addition of a balsamic drizzle just compliments the sweet & salty of the fruit and cheese. 
And can we just talk about that gorgeous color for a second. 
So pretty. 
Anyhooo...... we hope you have enjoyed our blog thus far and we definitely hope to continue to see you as we grow and learn and make more delicious things! 

Watermelon, Strawberry, and Feta Salad

2 cups watermelon, cubed
2 cups strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup feta, crumbled (divided) 
2 purple onion slices (thin)

2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper

Combine watermelon, strawberries, half the feta, and purple onion slices. 

In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, oil, and salt & pepper. Drizzle over the fruit and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle the remaining feta on top. 
Serve immediately. 

From start to finish in about 10 minutes. 
It is best served right away. If you want to make it in advance - just cut up the watermelon, strawberries, and onion together but don't add the feta and dressing until you are ready to serve it. 

According to MyFitnessPal, one serving (recipe makes 4), is: 86 calories, 13 carbs, 3 fat, 3 protein, and 2 fiber. A serving is about one cup. 
This is definitely the next dish you want to bring to your next summer get-together or BBQ. It is super easy to double or triple it for a crowd.
