The Melon Run is fast approaching! Remember to sign up and stay around for the awards ceremony. We give out melons three-deep in each age group! Here's a great way to share this refreshing summer fruit:
Red, White, and Bleu Salad
Serves ~10 "regular" people or ~7 hungry runner-type people
1 Watermelon (hopefully brought home from the FTC's 38th Annual Melon Run)
1 sweet vidalia onion
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of cherry/grape tomatoes
1 cup of red grapes
1 container of bleu cheese
1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh basil for garnish
Assembling the salad:
Chop up the watermelon and sweet onion into bite-sized pieces. Halve the cherry tomatoes and red grapes. All all fruits and veggies into a large serving bowl. Chill until party time.
Whisk together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl.
Right before serving, drizzle the dressing over the salad, sprinkle with bleu cheese and garnish with basil.
Enjoy and see you at the Melon Run!
