WW Peach Watermelon Peach Salad Recipe Notes
This recipe comes together easily. Just chop your watermelon and peaches, slice your cucumbers and toss with vinegar or lemon juice and sprinkle with bit of feta or ricotta salata.
Ricotta Salata cheese is made by salting and pressing fresh ricotta then aging it for a few months. The resulting cheese is like feta but with a more delicate flavor.
Since it may be hard to find depending on where you live, feta makes a fine substitute. If you don't like feta, Parmesan shavings or crumbled goats cheese would also work nicely.
Fruit Salad Additions & Recipe Variations
No Feta? Try ricotta salata, Parmesan shavings or crumbled Goat cheese (chevre)
No champagne or white wine vinegar? Substitute fresh lemon juice which is what I did
Vegan? Skip the cheese
Possible Additions: Chopped heirloom tomatoes, fresh raspberries and chopped or shredded fresh basil or mint would all work well.
