Watermelon, Feta and Mint {with a hint of Jalapeno} Salad

June 22, 2017

I am not a “fruit” person. I am a bona fide veggie person. I have never met a vegetable I did not like (yep, that includes Okra). But when it comes to summer salads, I sometimes crave something light, cold and refreshing – and that means fruit. And the fruit I like best is watermelon.

Crunchy, juicy and usually served cold, watermelon is almost always eaten on its own. Lately, foodies are discovering that the light taste makes it the perfect pairing for cocktails and a vast array of foods.  Feta cheese? Yes. Mint? Absolutely. Lime? Of course! Add jalapeno – and you have created a salad that your family and guests will love.

We sure do!

Watermelon, Feta and Mint (with a hint of Jalapeno) Salad

One quarter to one-half watermelon, sliced into small chunks (or you can use a melon baller like I did)

Fresh mint leaves sliced into ribbons

1/2 cup to one cup of Feta cheese (or more, to taste)

The juice from one lime

Minced jalapeno (cut in half and seeded and rubbed gently on a microplane. Start with a VERY small amount, 1/8 tsp., and work from there.)

Add all ingredients to a bowl, and gently stir.

Enjoy!
