Quinoa Mint Watermelon Salad 🌿🍉

The mint is doing pretty well in the garden. A deer is coming and eating the tops off of the tomato plant, the cucumber plants, and even the sunflower leaves. But the deer (we saw her yesterday and I scolded her just a bit…I do like her to come by, just leave some of the plants so they will grow!) doesn’t seem to care for the mint.

ready to chop!

This is where I changed the recipe…it called for tomatoes and cucumber, but I changed up the veggies for the fruit we had on hand.

It was so good!

1/2 cup chopped mint

1 cup cooked quinoa

Half cup each of chopped watermelon, chopped strawberries, chopped cantaloupe

1/4 cup chopped cheddar with Parmesan (pictured below)

One lemon juiced

Drizzle of olive oil


We got similar cheese from Trader Joe’s and LOVED it…then I found this at Aldi and it’s the same amazing taste! It has a pretty strong sharp cheddar and Parmesan flavor

The point of this salad is to use what you have, adapt it, and enjoy summer fresh produce! 🍉
