Splendid Salads: watermelon mint feta salad

Splendid Salads: watermelon mint feta salad


Nothing says summer quite like watermelon. And with the staying power of seedless watermelon, spitting seeds into the back yard is going to be "one of those things I did when I was a kid". Plain watermelon is excellent, but watermelon also makes for a great ingredient in salads and salsas. I love this salad because it had great balance with the sweet fruit and the salty cheese and a great punch of freshness with the mint.

This salad is best made right before you eat it; the salt from the feta draws water from the watermelon cubes and can make your bowl a bit soupy. If you need to prepare in advance, simply cube the watermelon and mince the mint and toss everything together just before serving.

There flavors combined are bold; so how much you wish you wish to use will be personal preference. For my salad, I used 1/4 of a medium sized watermelon, about 4 ounces of feta cheese and about 1 cup of chopped mint, but that is just a guide. Start with less cheese and mint as you can always add more!
