Watermelon Mozzarella salad is very easy to make, flavorful and crowd pleasing. It is perfect for your BBQ parties or any other summer gatherings.
The original recipe uses cantaloupe but I really did not enjoy the flavors. But when I tried it with cold watermelon, I fell in love with it. The magic is all in the zesty salad dressing! It helps to bring out the flavors of watermelon and marinates Mozzarella as well.

And believe me it is very refreshing, light and delicious. Now we prefer to eat watermelon this way only!

I also want to know if I can make these ahead of time. We're having a family reunion this Saturday with 150 people. I am on the committee so will have a lot to do on Saturday. I'd like to make these on Friday. I hope to get an answer soon.
