Fig and Watermelon Salad with Gorgonzola Cheese Recipe

fig almond watermelon gorgonzola cheese salad recipe

Chewy sweet figs, refreshing watermelon, crunchy salted almonds, and savory Gorgonzola cheese are a perfect salad combination atop a bed of mixed greens.

I have never eaten watermelon on a salad before, but we have been buying them every week and I was trying to come up with a dinner menu for some friends. With my watermelon staring me in the face, I added it in with the dried figs and gorgonzola at the last minute, and fell in love. Everyone went back for seconds….for the salad! So good.

FIG AND WATERMELON SALAD WITH GORGONZOLA CHEESE RECIPE
 

INGREDIENTS

•  2 cups mixed greens
•  1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese
•  1/2 cup watermelon chunks
•  1/4 cup chopped figs (I used dried)
•  small handful of almonds

 

DIRECTIONS

Combine and top with your favorite dressing. Some drizzled olive oil and lemon juice with a dash of pepper would be all this fig and watermelon salad needs, but I used an organic ranch salad dressing and it was perfection on a plate.

 

IF YOU OR YOUR KIDS DO NOT LIKE TO EAT SALADS OR VEGETABLES….

If you or your kids are not a fan of veggies, add a smoothie or two to your daily routine. Spinach literally melts away in a blender if blended long enough. Add a banana, a cup of frozen spinach and some ice or frozen fruit to make it taste even better. Your vegetable-hating kids and toddlers will chug it! I promise you. Blend it really well.

For added nutrition, Shakeology is a supplement that I take every day. It is the best meal replacement shake I have ever seen, is non-gmo, has all the super foods and nutrient dense supplements I used to buy separately all in one scoop. I make one giant blender-full with spinach, banana, ice, and a full scoop of Shakeology and split that between my whole family of four. I do not have to buy any other vitamins or supplements….it has it all.  Learn more or buy it now if interested.
