Follow the Fresh at your local store and grab these fresh items, you won’t be disappointed. My Watermelon, Blueberry & Feta Salad is spring perfection! The recipe was inspired by the Florida Fruit Salad with Lime and Honey recipe I found on the Fresh From Florida website.
There are tons of recipes available on their site. Everything from starters to entrees and sides are listed. If you can recall, I shared a fun Blueberry Parfait last year that was a total hit with the family! Follow THE Fresh From Florida’s social platforms I have shared below to find fantastic ideas featuring Florida fruits and vegetables and to watch easy how-to videos for quick and healthy recipes. I don’t know about you, but I am a visual person.
Florida farmers make it easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year-round. Using fresh produce and ingredients always helps to enhance your recipe creation. Just try it with seasonings, herbs and spices to start and you’ll notice a huge difference with your quality of dishes.
The feta cheese I used for this recipe was straight from the fresh cheese section at my local Fresh Market. I do this with my cheeses & deli meats weekly. Yes, I go to the store more often (weekly) than others, but the quality of the ingredients and the flavor profiles are accelerated because of how fresh they are.
