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!

Yum! This whole watermelon mozzarella salad tastes like summer. Light and refreshing, it would be perfect to enjoy at home or on a picnic. The mint dressing is sweet and tangy with a little kick. Don't be afraid of the crushed red pepper. It's a little surprise but not overwhelming. We put this on toothpicks, but you can easily serve it in a bowl. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
