Ready Time

20 mins

Yields

5 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups diced watermelon (about 1 small to medium-sized melon)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Cut the diced watermelon into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large bowl.

Crumble the feta cheese into small pieces and add them to the bowl with the watermelon.

Add the chopped fresh mint leaves to the bowl and toss gently to combine.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, and honey until well combined.

Pour the dressing over the watermelon mixture and toss to coat.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Serve chilled, dividing the salad among 5 plates.

Notes

For a more intense mint flavor, be sure to chop the leaves just before adding them to the salad. Don’t overdress the salad – you want the watermelon to still be the star of the show! If you’re not a fan of feta, you can substitute with goat cheese or ricotta salata for a similar salty kick.

To make this salad more substantial, add some toasted pistachios or almonds for a satisfying crunch.

If you’re making this salad ahead of time, wait to add the mint until just before serving to prevent it from getting soggy.
