This recipe comes from the "Sundance Resort" in Utah where many celebrities go to relax and rejuvenate at the spa!
2 cups medium diced seedless watermelon
1/4 cup toasted walnuts
3 bunches watercress greens, ends trimmed
1/4 Gorgonzola or blue cheese, crumbled (could also substitute feta)
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
- Whisk all the vinaigrette ingredients except oils, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Combine olive and canola oils and while whisking, slowly pour into orange juice mixture. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
- When serving, combine watermelon, nuts, and watercress in a large bowl. Add just enough vinaigrette to coat the greens. Serve onto plates and top with cheese!
