Tabouleh and Watermelon Salad

Okay, now just bear with me here.  I know this may not sound appetizing, but this is maybe one of the most delicious and refreshing salads I’ve ever had.  It’s simple, healthy, and perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

Tabouleh with Watermelon

TABOULEH WITH WATERMELON AND FETA

1 box tabouleh mix

Olive oil (according to package directions)

1/4-1 cup parsley, depending on taste

1/2 cucumber, chopped into bite sized pieces

1 cup crumbled feta cheese

1-1/2 cups watermelon, cut into 1″ squares

Juice of 1 lemon

1.  Prepare tabouleh according to package directions (usually soaking the mix in boiling water for at least 30 minutes).

2.  When tabouleh has set, remove from fridge and fluff with a fork.  Add olive oil, parsley, cucumber, feta, and watermelon.  Stir until incorporated.  Sprinkle lemon juice over the salad and stir once more.

Let the flavors marinate overnight, or at least for 1-2 hours.  Serve as a main dish, side dish, or use it in a lettuce wrap.  The possibilities are endless!
