Watermelon Caprese Summer Salad Recipe

Today’s a big day for The Lysst. Today we’re introducing our resident health and fitness expert, Sara Eichinger. Sara trains me (Alyssa) a few days a week, making sure I don’t blow up like a balloon with all my indulgences I somehow justify. She’s a #girlboss too, which makes her even cooler. You can check out her website here: Natural Fitness 704. She’s local to Charlotte like me, but she will be soon offering remote training services, so be sure to keep tabs on her! I’ve loved welcoming her into the world of entrepreneurship and helping her build her business (*inconspicuous cough* that website is my handiwork… #humblebrag).

With all that being said… You’ll find exclusive healthy recipes and booty-busting workouts from Sara here on The Lysst in the Be Well vertical. Some will also be shared in The Short Lysst, so don’t forget to sign up for your Friday newsletter jam-packed with awesomeness!

WATERMELON CAPRESE SALAD

 

Watermelon Caprese Salad Recipe

The best thing about summer is keeping things easy, breezy, and light. The Watermelon Caprese Summer Salad is one of my favorite “go-to” dishes. It can be made for single servings, used as a side dish at your next BBQ, or as the perfect light lunch after your summer sweat session.

If you are watching your caloric intake, use the palm method for serving sizes. If you are making a big bowl, use as much as your heart desires!

You can choose to add extra spinach and other ingredients as desired. I added some leftover grilled chicken at the end for extra protein—it's up to you how filling you want this dish to be!
