Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint Recipe
This recipe is so easy, there really are no exact measurements. Really, it is up to you how much feta you want to lay on your piece of watermelon! To me the most important elements in making a delicious watermelon salad with feta are that the watermelon is really sweet and cold, and the feta should be of high quality and at room temperature.
Step 1: The most time consuming part of making Watermelon Salad with Feta is slicing the watermelon. I cut both ends off the watermelon and then stand the watermelon upright, slicing away all of the rind. Make sure you do not have any light rind left as this will have no flavor. Slice watermelon vertically into rounds, thickness up to you.
Step 2: Add Feta Cheese to watermelon. Chiffonade or tear mint into ribbons or small pieces and sprinkle on top of watermelon. Drizzle honey. Optional: flakey sea salt.
*If you live in the Boston area, Sophia’s Greek Pantry sells the most extensive selection of Greek Feta Cheese. I am partial to Kozani Feta which is a sheep’s milk feta cheese. While there, pick up some of Sophia’s award winning Goat Milk Greek Yogurt. You will never go back to supermarket yogurt again!
