Watermelon Feta Summer Salad

Nothing says summer time like a refreshing, sweet and juicy watermelon.  A watermelon, feta salad is one of my summer favorites....the sweet and salty flavor combination is definitely a winner, for me....the sweet of the watermelon, combined with the saltiness of the feta cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette top top it off...I could eat this salad every day during summer.  It's super healthy for you as win!

Watermelon Feta Summer Salad


1/2 of a large, seedless watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1 English cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
5 oz feta cheese, crumbled
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3 whole fresh mint sprigs for garnish


Cut melon into 1/2 inch pieces.  Cut cucumber into 1/2 inch pieces, place both in a mixing bowl.  In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt and pepper.  Slowly drizzle in the olive oil.  Add the chopped mint. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

Mix the feta in with the watermelon and cucumber.  Pour the dressing over the melon mixture and toss gently, as to not mash the watermelon.  Garnish with the sprigs of mint.
