Watermelon Feta and Mint Salad

Ingredients

1 seedless watermelon, sweet and delicious
3 ounces (or more depending on what you like) feta cheese, a nice creamy one
1 cup of fresh mint
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar-very good quality
black pepper if you like pepper

Preparation

1
Directions: Cut watermelon in half and remove watermelon from rind. You can either spoon it out like a mad man, carefully remove it and cut it into squares, or scoop it all out with a melon baller-which is what I did. I liked the look of all those succelent balls of watermelon.
2
So, scoop out your watermelon and put it in a bowl-I used the leftover water melon rind for my bowl, and you’re going to add your dressing, which is so simple, soooo easy.
3
Make the Salad Dressing: Add your oil, and vinegar. No salt necessary as the feta is salty.
4
Mix this all together and chill for 15 minutes, which will give you time to prep your mint.
5
Chiffanade the mint, which means cut it into fine ribbons. Roll up the mint leaves like a cigar and then cut it into nice strips or ribbons. I had my daughter and her friend do this for me; they are 10 so you can see how easy this is.
6
Next crumble over with that delicious creamy feta cheese. The salty contrast with the sweet melon is so crazy good that it is hard to describe.
7
To finish add the fresh mint, which brings it all together. And a little more black pepper at the end so there’s a little on the feta.
