Watermelon Salad With Feta & Balsamic Dressing

Not many people think of salad for breakfast, but it can be a delicious and fabulous way to get your first servings of greens of the day. Spinach is densely nutritious providing a hearty dose of dietary fibre and many essential nutrients. Personally, I love eating it raw rather than sauteed, so a small nourish bowl like this is often on my breakfast menu. Ready? Let's start cooking..

Dark, leafy greens like spinach, are highly beneficial for your skin, hair, and bone health. Greens provide a wholefood-based source of trace protein, iron, and other minerals. Spinach is also high in dietary fibre and water, both of which promote good gut health and support the digestive tract's function.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend that most adults should eat at least 5-6 servings of vegetables every day. By adding salad to your breakfast menu each week, you'll have already had your first serving before tea time!

Batch Cook The Recipe

If you want to batch cook this recipe, I suggest making up the dressing in advance and storing it in a small, sealed jar. For the watermelon, only a little prep is needed to cube the melon. However, since it is so watery, it is best to pre-chop and store in a separate Tupperware container until you want to assemble the salad. Otherwise, if you make the fully assembled salad with the melon, it'll quickly spoil.

This salad recipe is really so easy to make with all the fresh bagged salad greens you can find at the grocery shops these days. Simply grab the dressing, melon and toss it together in seconds.

Healthy Topping Ideas

Honestly, I wouldn't add much more to this salad as I enjoy the simplicity of it adn the flavour together, but you can definitely switch up the dressing for lemon, just plain oil and vinegar, or a sweet balsamic glaze.
