The Fake Watermelon Slice Salad Recipe

Many of us are sick and tired of all those boring salads like strawberry spinach salad and crave something more creative that no one has tried and made yet. Experimenting in the kitchen always leads to successful results. Today, I am going to share a super creative salad recipe that you will certainly love.

The watermelon salad that does not contain watermelon will wow your family, friends and guests. The ingredient list is rather affordable and simple.

Fake Watermelon Slice Salad Recipe
Ingredients:

1-2 onions, chopped
2 boneless chicken breasts, cooked, diced
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onions
1 bunch dill
1 pound mushrooms, diced
2-3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2-3 cucumbers, grated
4 tbsp cheese, grated
2-3 pitted black olives
butter
Directions:

Heat butter (or olive oil) in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms, and cook stirring until golden brown and soft.

Now that you have all the ingredients ready, start layering your salad. Begin with a good layer of cooked and diced chicken breasts on the bottom, followed by a layer of mayo, them mushrooms with onions, followed by a layer of mayo, then eggs, and again a layer of mayo. Make sure you create a watermelon slice.

Use chopped tomatoes, grated cheese, cucumbers and dill to decorate your salad. Slice the olives to create watermelon seeds. Voila! A quick, easy and creative salad that only dieters may hate.

Open-Faced Watermelony Sandwiches for Breakfast

These open sandwiches are actually not those delicious watermelony treats we love to enjoy on a hot summer day since there is no watermelon in them. But still, they are perfect for breakfast, Sunday brunch or even office lunch.

The only problem is these sandwiches are calorie and fat dense, so healthy eaters and dieters will have to make some healthy ingredient swaps. When making open-faced watermelony sandwiches for breakfast, I skip mayonnaise and use low fat cream cheese instead of a regular one.

Ingredients:

1 loaf French bread
1 carrot, mashed
olive oil
mayonnaise
1 tomato
1 green bell pepper
2-3 pitted black olives
1-2 garlic cloves, mashed
cream cheese
parsley
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Start with slicing your French bread diagonally into 1/4-inch slices. Brush them lightly with olive oil and place in one layer on a baking sheet. Bake the slices for 10 minutes or until they are crisp and a bit browned if you wish.

In a medium bowl, combine garlic, mayo, cream cheese, and carrot and blend until perfectly smooth. Spread the mixture on your baguette slices. Now use tomato wedges, green bell pepper strips, olives and cream cheese (or processed cheese if you do not care about calories) to create your “watermelonies,” garnish with parsley and serve. Bon appétit!

Snowy White Piano Salad Recipe

With an abundant of salad recipes available online these days, choosing something unique is seriously tricky. You want a perfect mix of taste, simplicity, originality, and beauty, but end up making the very same salad you served last Easter or Christmas. Fear not. This festive weekend, you can make an incredible jaw-dropping salad that will kick off your Sunday brunch and bring wow factor to the table.

If you are vegan or vegetarian, replace chicken with seitan, eggs with white potato, and Swiss cheese with vegan Parmesan cheese. You can skip mayonnaise or use plain Greek yogurt instead. These are some of the ingredient swaps I’m going to make when creating this beautiful Snowy White Piano Salad. I’m also going to use cooked beets to make those cute roses.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups chicken, cooked, chopped
  • 3 cups Swiss cheese, grated
  • 3 to 4 hard-boiled eggs, shredded
  • 2 cucumbers, shredded
  • 2 cups mushroom, sliced and fried
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 medium-sized tomatoes for roses
  • black olives for garnish
  • parsley for garnish
  • 9 to 10 slices of Swiss cheese for garnish

Directions:

The 9-layer salad is quick to make as soon as you get all the ingredients ready. Start with placing chicken in the bottom of a large salad bowl. Spread a tiny bit of mayonnaise over chicken and top with mushrooms. Spread mayonnaise over them and top with cucumbers. Again spread mayonnaise and top with eggs, then mayo and cover your salad with grated cheese. Decorate and enjoy!
