There’s something about watermelon that I can’t really put my finger on. The sweetness, the juiciness, I just love it! While eating it right off the rind is good enough for me any day, I still like finding creative ways to prepare it. One of my favorite and SIMPLEST preparations is Watermelon Salad. And when sugar melons start popping up at the Greenmarkets, I probably make this once a week. It’s really just three ingredients plus seasoning:
Place all three in a large salad bowl, add a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle of salt, then toss and serve.
An easy summer salad to impress your dinner guests with. It looks so pretty, they’ll think you spent WAY MORE than 5 minutes putting it together!

That sounds great. I never would have thought of putting feta and watermelon together. Thanks for sharing!
Glad you like it! The feta I get is pretty salty so it’s a really nice balance between the sweet watermelon and fresh mint.
It might be simple but it sounds great…
Oh it is! And completely worth those whole 5 minutes of putting it together! 🙂
