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. But, if you are making a big bowl, use as much as your heart desires! And, don’t forget: If you make this recipe, feel free to tag us in your food pics(find us on Insta at @thelysstagram) with #TheLysstEats. We’d love to see your culinary creation!

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!
