Watermelon Mint Summer Salad 1920 2560 The Ultimate Lineup

My favorite salad for a refreshing summer meal is made with watermelon.  This combination of sweet fresh fruit, refreshing mint, salty feta, and a bite of onion creates the perfect bite every time.  A few key tips to make sure this is the best salad; make sure you have a ripe watermelon; look for the field spot should be yellow and it should feel a heavy for its size, slice the red onion as thin as possible, I use a mandolin to avoid teary eyes and get it really thin


  • 1 Small Watermelon Cut into cubes
  • 1 handful of fresh mint chopped small
  • 1/2-1 Red onion cut as thin as possible
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 TBLs Balsamic Vinegar

  1. Combine your Watermelon, mint, and onion in a large bowl
