School might be starting but hot weather still draws us outdoors. One of my summer favs is a Watermelon Jalapeño Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette. It is light and refreshing on warm days.

Cube the watermelon and cut the jicama in match sticks. Slice a red jalapeño, or omit if you do not like the heat! If you want, cube up a little salty feta cheese to toss in, before serving.
