Watermelon, Feta and Mint Salad

Print Email

This combination may seem slightly odd, but is a refreshing summer salad that blends the sweet and savory aspects just perfectly.

1 cup watermelon, chopped into 1/2 dice
1/2 cup crumbled feta
2 tablespoons chopped mint
4 cups mixed baby greens with arugula
3 tablespoons balsalmic vinegar
1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fresh ground pepper 
Pinch of salt 

In a medium size bowl, mix the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper to taste with a whisk. Add baby greens and mint and toss to coat. Add more pepper if needed.

Place equal amounts of greens on two salad plates.  Add 1/2 cup watermelon on top of each plate of greens, than sprinkle each with half of the feta. Drizzle each with more balsalmic, if desired.

One of my favorite bites of 2009 was a bit of a trek, which is most unfortunate because if I lived nearby I would be a regular. I'd eat there so often they'd probably have to name a table...
