Partnership & Recipes As Fine As Wine
OKC thrives on partnerships, you all know we love collaboration so much its in our name. One of our wonderful partners is Kim and George Murray at Beach House Winery. Fun fact friends, all the wine at my birthday fundraiser was donated by BHW making the night fine as wine and super successful!
The Murrays gifted me some delicious BHW olive oil and vinegar for my birthday. It’s so incredible I was inspired to make this easy summer recipe out of their awesome products and some surplus watermelon from our friends at MELLANO FARMS. It’s paired together perfectly with a chilled glass of BEACH HOUSE ROSÉ.
This makes the perfect summer day brunch or light dinner.
Watermelon Salad Recipe by Vallie
2 Table Spoons of Olive Oil
(We used Beach House winery MEYER LEMON OIL)
1 Tablespoon Finely Chopped Mint
1 Tablespoons of White Balsamic Vinegar
(We Used Beach House Winery FIG WHITE BALSAMIC VINEGAR)
1 Tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
Pinch of Pepper
I put all of the ingredients in a small mason jar, then put the lid on and shake it until mixed well or emulsified no mason jar no worries just whisk together in a bowl..
Set aside and assemble the salad.
3 cups of bite sized chunks of watermelon
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/3 cup crumbled Feta
(For my Vegans we added Violife VEGAN FETA)
Toss lightly, then add dressing and toss again – but be gentle as to not mash the watermelon up too much. Now enjoy this light and tasty salad! If you want to jazz it up here are some ideas that are simply delicious.
