Minted Watermelon Feta Tomato Salad
Wacky combo? I admit this watermelon feta tomato salad is quite a stretch from the way watermelon is usually enjoyed: only one small good problem—it’s fabulous, so go for it! You must have noticed as I did that seeded watermelon is much tastier than the “convenient” and bland seedless hybrid. Just spit out the seeds discreetly, OK?
Just one more wonderful thing while you are making watermelon feta tomato salad: did you know you could juice watermelon, rind and all? Watermelon juice: Who knew? Delicious, and a nutritional powerhouse!
8 cups watermelon, cut into ½-inch cubes
¾ cup crumbled feta cheese
2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes halved
1 cup fresh mint, packed, sliced very thin
6 scallions sliced thin
¼ cup fresh lemon or lime juice
¼ cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste (you might need no salt at all)
pinch of red pepper flakes
Place all salad ingredients in a platter. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a little bowl and pour over the salad. Mixvery gently so as not to extract moisture.
Makes 8 servings.
