Watermelon Feta Salad

Posted by on July 5, 2012

This summer we seem to be having an endless string of 90+ days, which makes it a challenge to find light and delicious dishes that don’t make me sleepy. My ideal meal in weather like this is a light salad or fruit/vegetable along with a few bitesof something really tasty like a grilled cheese. Balance between veg and cravings.

This salad has crisp, refreshing watermelon paired with feta, which is a lighter cheese that works well in summer. Add a little fresh lemon juice and mint, and you have a great starter or light lunch for these hot days.

Watermelon and Feta Salad

2 cups cubed watermelon

1 cup cubed feta (your favorite variety)

3 tablespoons chopped mint

Juice of 1/2 lemon

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 scallion, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the watermelon, feta, mint, and scallion in a bowl and toss. Squeeze the lemon over and drizzle the olive oil. Toss again to combine and serve!

    This salad looks sensational – so fresh and summery. It would be perfect for the ‘Herbs on Saturday’ blog challenge which I’m hosting this month over at Bangers & Mash if you fancied entering it?

    Feta with watermelon is awesome! I usually never bother to actually shape it into a salad, just eat some watermelon, eat some feta and so on.. :) It looks delicious!

    I make this same salad but use goat cheese instead of feta! Delicious.
    Last time I made it I found a Watermellon Vinegrete to top it with!

    Watermelon is underused… one of my favorite restaurants did it with diced pork belly and sesame… it is awesome!
