Happy Father’s Day! Last Thursday I posted several burger options to complement your unique dad’s personality. Today I’ll be making my husband, Richard’s, favorite Turkey Burgers with Cracked Wheat and Spinach and serve them with a Patricia Well’s Watermelon and Feta Salad, found in the July issue of Runner’s World magazine. Richard will enjoy his Father’s Day lunch after a long run, so this healthy menu–all inspired from Runner’s World magazine–will insure he’s a happy dad!
Does the combination of watermelon and feta sound weird? Give it a try and see why the combination of watermelon, feta and mint is a classic. I made a similar Watermelon and Feta salad for a dinnerFeed blog last July. The primary differences are Patricia Wells tosses mixed baby greens in her salad and the acidity of the vinaigrette is lemony. I use thinly sliced red onion, instead of mixed greens, and my vinaigrette is a bit sweeter, enhanced with honey and a fruity vinegar.
Take your pick or create your own version to suit your, or your dad’s, palate. The olive oil adds a rich flavor but may easily be omitted in both watermelon salad recipes.
