Runner's recipe: Red, White, and Bleu Salad

June 21, 2016 3:17 PM | Betsy Suda (Administrator)

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!
