Watermelon Salad w/Mint & Feta
I hate watermelon. The only time I ever ate watermelon growing up was to participate in seed spitting contests. However, my cousin made a similar watermelon salad a few years ago and it turns out I like watermelon this way–tangy, salty and refreshing. I know it sounds like a weird combination but I assure you it is good!
We had half a watermelon left over from our 4th of July BBQ and I didn’t want to throw it away. I have a pot of fresh mint always at the ready (its impossible to kill!) and all we had to do was pick up some feta. The dressing was a simple vinaigrette of red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and mint leaves.
I served this watermelon salad with homemade pizzanadas/empazones, which I’ll tell you about soon.
