The Ultimate Summer Salad

Lettuce is our life at Local Roots HQ: we eat, breath, and sleep leafy greens. Lunch around here can get downright hare-like. So we decided to spread the love and serve up some inspiration to fight salad fatigue. First on the menu, the Ultimate Summer Salad.  It's fresh, sweet and a little bit salty. It looks impressive yet it's deceptively easy to make!

Ingredients

Watermelon

1 Head of Butter Lettuce

Feta

Slivered Almonds

1 Lemon

Olive Oil

Salt

Put it together

Chop the roots off the head of lettuce. Gently break the head apart and arrange the leaves on your serving dish. Next, chop the watermelon and feta into bite-sized chunks and layer them on your bed of lettuce. Feel free to play around with different shapes, sizes and arrangements for a fun presentation. Finally, sprinkle your slivered almonds. To dress your salad simply drizzle with olive oil and lemon, and salt to taste.  

Enjoy!  And stay tuned for more delicious recipes.
