Watermelon, mint, feta, and cucumber make a fresh and delightful summer side dish. Best of all: It takes only 10 minutes to put together and it’s cheap to make! Perfect if you’re invited to an impromptu barbecue or picnic. Your friends and family will be very impressed with your flavor prowess. Essentially it’s very similar to my Greek Salad with a few swaps: watermelon instead of tomato, mint instead of onion and garlic, balsamic vinaigrette instead of red wine. The feta and mint superbly enhance the flavor and balance the sweetness of the watermelon in a way that will make this one of your go to summer salads!!
- 1/2 large seedless watermelon
