• To me this salad is not only the epitome of summer but it's also the perfect balance of sweet & savory. The star is sweet watermelon but ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, mint & balsamic also play a role.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of fresh, ripe watermelon chopped into cubes & seeded
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded & chopped
  • 1 cup feta crumbles
  • 3 small yellow tomatoes, cut into wedges. Red tomatoes are perfectly fine, we had these & I thought the colors would be pretty, that’s the only reason I used yellow (:
  • garnish: fresh mint &/or basil, chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • balsamic glaze

Preparation

  • The watermelon is incredibly absorbent & I really like to maintain it’s original scrumptious candy-like flavor so I don’t mix any of the ingredients together until I plate them. In other words, I chop everything up & keep them in piles on my cutting board. I then assemble the salad on each person’s plate when it’s time to eat. Give it a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic glaze, & coarse salt. Top with chopped basil & mint & eat immediately. Refuse to do the dishes & enforce that all family members address you as “chef”, a la Gordon Ramsey, from now on because this salad was that darn good.
