Strawberries, blueberries and watermelon, oh my! Nothing says summer like a refreshing fruit salad. Add in a bit of feta for a tart kick, then smooth it all out with a sweet, complimentary poppyseed dressing. Seriously, this salad is one of my favorites.
I was inspired to make it again after I found the new Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups on demo at Walmart the other day. The lady demoing the product was extremely knowledgeable. She told us about the 10g of protein with milk, and made sure we knew to only stir in cold milk because it won’t activate with warm milk. Everyone was excited to try it.
I didn’t know what to expect the first time I tried it because I’ve seen nothing like this before, but wow, it’s delicious! Crunchy. Cool. Yum. We stocked up on several because we enjoyed it so much. I knew as soon as I picked it up that we needed to pair it with my watermelon, berry, and feta salad with poppyseed dressing. It’s the perfect combination to make up a well rounded breakfast for me.
It’s easy to make, here’s how I did it. Just grab a couple of cups of watermelon, about a cup or so of chopped strawberries, about a cup of blueberries, then a half cup to a cup of crumbled feta and mix it up in a bowl. Set the fruit and berries aside and create the poppyseed dressing. You’ll need red wine vinegar, sugar, ground mustard, vegetable oil, and salt. The easy to follow instructions have the amounts, below.
Combine vinegar, sugar, salt and mustard using a blender. I used an immersion blender, but if you don’t have one your counter top blender will work just fine. Once combined slowly start to drizzle in the oil. When everything is mixed to create an emulsion, stir in the poppy seeds.
That’s all there is to it! You can serve this dressing directly over your fruit salad, or, if you’re like me, you’ll serve it on the side so each person can add as much or as little as they want to their salad. I also like to take individual pieces of fruit and dip them in. It tastes fantastic!
Just pour cold milk into the cup up to the line…
That right there is a delicious, easy to create breakfast!

My personal favorite is Strawberry Almond, but the rest of the family pretty much enjoys all of them equally. What can I say, I have a soft spot for strawberries and almonds.
