How to Make Watermelon Feta Salad

It’s always about the quality of ingredients that you use that make the difference in how delicious your meals are. We encourage you to use all organic and fresh-picked ingredients from the market whenever possible. For this Watermelon Feta Salad recipe you will need:

  • olive oil
  • lime juice
  • Waxing Kara Honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • Seedless Watermelon
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Feta cheese crumbles
  • Fresh-picked mint
  • Sweet Onion
  • Marcona Almonds
  • olive oil

Step 1 Mix the sauce

In a large bowl, whisk the oil, lime juice, honey, salt, and pepper. Add the watermelon, tomato, feta, mint, and onion and toss with your hands.

Step 2 Prepare and serve

Chill for several hours before serving, the flavors time to meld together. Garnish with almonds before serving.

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 delicately 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 summer flair to this fresh salad. Using yellow pear or cherry tomatoes brightens the dish and makes it all the more Instagram worthy.
