Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint

2 07 2011

What a refreshing summer salad! I’m glad I spotted it in Our Ohio magazine so I could give it a try for one of our many festivities this weekend!

Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint

Makes 4 servings:

  • 4 cups diced seedless watermelon, chilled
  • 1 cup diced or crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Ground pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients. Chill to blend flavors. Taste and add salt if desired, but the feta cheese serves as the salty component.

Looks like an interesting combo. Love the photo. 😉

Whenever I see MINT, I am reminded of the house we grew up at in Cleveland. Spearmint grew… WILD !!!! So wild, I am talking invasively WILD. We moved to our next home when I was 6. I was so sad to be leaving the spearmint, I brought some and planted it behind the garage. My Mom did not know. She DID find out sometime later when IT started to take over behind the garage. I BET it’s there today. LOL I fessed up to bringing IT with me … she was not very happy. Always makes ME chuckle though. 🙂

That’s a great story, you should have continued to carry it from house to house, LOL! Mint does grow like a weed…Alex’s sister gave me a bunch so I’ve been using it in different things all week!
