Happy Monday, y’all! We’re kicking off the week with another delicious recipe from our Colorful Bridal Luncheon. This zesty orange and mint watermelon salad is full of bold flavors and gorgeous color, perfect for a summer party or trip to the lake. The flavors of the fruit are totally kicked up a notch thanks to the mint, and when the balsamic is added, pure bliss! Nothing we’ve ever made has tasted this much like summer and we can’t wait for y’all to try it!
