COOKING WITH CLORIS -- WATERMELON & GOAT CHEESE SALAD


Food editor Cloris McWerther is back today with a salad recipe that will really keep you cool. -- AP

WATERMELON AND GOAT CHEESE SALAD

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lime juice
4 cups seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into chunks
1 seedless cucumber, sliced thin
3 cups mixed greens
3 oz. crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup slivered almonds

In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, wine vinegar, and lime juice. Add watermelon, cucumber, and mixed greens to the bowl and toss. Divide into four portions. Top each with crumbled goat cheese and sprinkle on almonds.

Hmm…I’ll bet you could add some cooked shrimp or chicken to this recipe and make it a meal instead of a side dish. What do you think, readers? -- AP
