Watermelon salad dressing

We keep the watermelon salad dressing to a minimum to let the various flavors shine. But if you’d like a dressing that is more substantial for the watermelon salad, try this combo:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
