Eva Amurri Martino of Happily Eva After shares a sweet and savory mother's day brunch recipe

I’m a total sweet and salty flavor gal.  I just love that umami combo of all the sweet and salty goodness combining in my mouth to form the best treat for the tastebuds! And this salad encapsulates all of it and then some.  I served it with my Mother’s Day brunch, but it would be just as good as a side salad next to a big pasta dish, or even a potluck crowd pleaser.  

I would also say that you would be able to easily swap out some juicy peaches in summer time for the watermelon and have an equally delicious salad.  Plop some fresh mozzarella balls on top if you’d like to add some creaminess! This recipe creates a platter to share between 4-5 people.

    Love this recipe. I didn’t have any oranges so I left off the zest and it tasted totally amazing anyway.
