This layered gluten free watermelon salad is so crisp and delicious! It’s a perfect summer salad! I love to pair it with steak, chicken, or shrimp for a light meal!
LAYERED GLUTEN FREE WATERMELON SALAD
This layered watermelon salad is naturally gluten-free. It is crisp and delicious and pairs well with any protein you want to serve it with. It has just a hint of tartness from the balsamic vinegar and creamy goat cheese. You can serve it layered or cube the watermelon and add the other ingredients to the plate. I personally like the presentation of it layered! Each person gets a few layers with delicious ingredients in between!
This watermelon salad reminds me of childhood BBQs. My recipes for smoked tri-tip or My Favorite Wings would pair perfectly with this salad! It never failed in the hot summer months that someone would always bring a watermelon to eat. I am starting to drool just thinking about it! Haha!
WHAT INGREDIENTS DO I NEED TO MAKE THIS WATERMELON SALAD?
A seedless watermelon– choose the size based on how many people you are serving. Or how much watermelon you want leftover.
Goat Cheese- I like to use plain unflavored goat cheese.
Balsamic Vinegar or Balsamic Reduction- I look for a brand that is labeled gluten free. If you can’t find reduction at the store, you can reduce balsamic vinegar simply at home.
Put the balsamic vinegar in a small pot on the stove and simmer over low – medium heat until reduced in half. Voila! Balsamic reduction!
Arugula- This adds a peppery kick to the salad.
Salt and Pepper
Super easy to make and only a few ingredients! My favorite kind of dish!
