This red white and blue watermelon salad recipe is perfect for fourth of July! It’s refreshing, delicious and colorful to celebrate July 4th.
It has all the colors of the American flag and best of all, all the fruity and refreshing flavors are perfect for any July 4th BBQ. It’s also a super pretty salad because we used star cookie cutters to make the star shapes out of the watermelon slices. Using two different sized starts, we had a blast cutting out the star shapes and so it’s a perfect and easy watermelon recipe to make with your kids. The blue comes from fresh blueberries and the white comes from crumbled feta cheese. All the fresh, fruit and salty flavors combine perfectly together especially with the lemon zest and lemon juice.
