If you need something interesting to mix up your picnic table, this Watermelon Feta Salad is for you.
The combination of ingredients may seem a little odd: sliced tomatoes, cubed melon, feta and a honey-oil dressing…but trust us, this watermelon feta salad is sweet, savory, and delicious. You wouldn’t believe how perfectly it pairs with our Honey Glazed Chicken! Tomorrow is also National Watermelon Day, so what better way to celebrate then with this refreshing summer salad.
On the shore we have several different kinds of mint growing, from mountain mint to chocolate mint to spearmint. You can use a different type of mint each time you make this salad, but it’s best to keep it simple and pick one variety. Part of the beauty of this salad is how intertwined the delicate sweet and salty flavors become when they have time to meld together in the refrigerator.
Since tomatoes are in season, pick up some from your local farmer’s market. Heirloom varieties are especially colorful with a nice crunch. They give a summery flair to this fresh salad. Using yellow pear or cherry tomatoes brightens the dish and makes it all the more Instagram worthy.
