This Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint is easy-to-make and all you need is a big bowl, a green ripe watermelon, fresh mint, and a few pantry items.
Watermelon is perfectly sweet and juicy, when combined with crumbly salty feta cheese, it takes something like a traditional summer salad to another experience.
What’s in a Watermelon Feta Salad?
Seedless Watermelon- the juicy fruit that will add sweetness and crispness. It’s the star of the show. Make sure to use freshly-cut watermelon and none of that pre-packaged sliced watermelon. That’s a no-no…
Feta Cheese– will add saltiness and texture. There are a few “feta kinds of cheese” in the market. You want to use a dried and salted greek-style cheese. Bulgarian soft cheese will not be suitable for this recipe.
Mint– is going to add bright notes and freshness to the salad, I mean, it is the only green in it!
Lemon-I add lemon to everything!
Pomegranate Molasses- it’s tangy, sweet, and unique. You can use aged balsamic if you are unable to find pomegranate molasses at your local market.
Olive Oil- will give the salad a bite and velvetiness. Make sure to use a good quality extra virgin olive oil.
At this instant, I like to drizzle the lemony mint dressing over the top and gently toss until each cube is fully coated before adding the feta cheese.
