Watermelon and Shaved Ricotta Salata with Mint

Watermelon disks are stacked with alternate layers of kale to create layers of contrasting flavors. Tender baby kale provides the perfect balance of nutrition, taste and texture, while juicy watermelon conjures up a taste of summer. This visually pleasing salad is as refreshing as it is beautiful.
