Yummy Summer Salad
I made this a few times last summer and tried it again this weekend. OMGoodness!!! It is sooooooooo yummy. I took it to events that we went to last summer and got asked for the recipe every time. Thought I would post to share the yum!

Watermelon Salad
6 - 8 Servings

Raspberry Vinaigrette
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam (I use Polaner's)
1/4 cup cranberry juice (I use the no extra sugar added kind)
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
6 Tablespoons really good Olive Oil

Puree first 4 ingredients in blender until smooth. With machine running, gradually add oil. Salt ad pepper to taste. Cover and chill.

Caramelized Macadamia Nuts
1 Tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons (packed) light brown sugar
3/4 coarsely chopped salted Macadamia Nuts

Melt butter in a heavy skillet over med heat. Add sugar and stir to blend add nuts and stir to coat transfer to a plate and cool.

A few handfuls of watermelon (add to suit your taste) diced into bite-sized pieces.
A bag of mixed field greens
3/4 crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1/2 small red onion (sliced paper thin)

Mix salad items together right before you sever. Toss with dressing to suit your taste and sprinkle the nuts on top.


Sounds absolutely delicious. I will have to give it a try.
