I love a sweet, delicious watermelon and this Watermelon Salad is a wonderful way to serve it up – perfect for a summertime BBQ!
I’ve been making this salad for several years now and I was told how to make it by my dear friend, Therese. I added the blueberries to the recipe for a little twist (and I had some in the fridge). I was skeptical at first…”Feta with Watermelon?” but it really is a tasty combination. Adding the mint and lime juice makes it a perfect summer salad when you want something a little more fancy than just watermelon chunks. And, your guests will love it too, trust me on this one!
- 1/2 Watermelon, cut into bite sized chunks
- 1/2 c. fresh blueberries
- 1/4 c. chopped Mint
- 1 Lime, juiced, zested
- 1/2 c. crumbled Feta cheese (use vegan feta, if plant-based)
- Cut up watermelon into bite sized chunks and put in a bowl and let it sit in the fridge for several hours. This will let the water seep out of the watermelon so it’s not soggy. Prior to preparing and serving the salad, drain excess water. Add blueberries, a bunch of chopped mint, lime juice, lime zest, and crumbled feta. Taste and adjust amount of lime/mint to your liking.
I don’t really measure the ingredients for this salad, just go more by looks and taste. But these proportions should be a good starting point. It’s very forgiving so you really can’t go wrong. Don’t be shy with the mint and feta!
