I was skeptical. Very skeptical. The mint and watermelon combo sounded good. But, feta? Turns out there was no need for fear or the hesitation as my fork wavered in front of my mouth with the first bite. Hands down, this was the best new recipe I have tried in months. The flavors don’t just compliment each other, they morph into something new and divine. The new flavor tastes like…. summer. That’s it. This salad tastes like a mouthful of summer.

Watermelon Salad with Feta, Mint and Lime

Watermelon, cut in chunks or cubed
Feta Cheese
Fresh Mint Leaves
Finishing Salt, I used an Australian pink salt that was light and delicate.


Place your watermelon on a plate or bowl. Sprinkle it with feta cheese. Wash mint leaves and cut them into threads. Sprinkle it over the top. Squeeze a lime wedge onto the fruit. Sprinkle with a heavy pinch of salt. Do not use a heavy pinch of table salt. I suggest a courser salt. If you don’t have it, just use a touch of table salt or none at all.
