We got a big beautiful watermelon from a friend this week so I cut up a bunch of it for an appetizer at family dinner. After dinner there was still a large portion of watermelon left so I made Watermelon Salad with Fresh Mint and Feta for myself as a snack.
Here’s how to make it:
Cut the watermelon into small chunks. Toss in as much feta as you’d like. Cut a couple mint leaves into thin strips and mix them in. Make a dressing by mixing a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of lime juice plus a little salt and pepper. Pour dressing over the salad and enjoy.
I was carrying the remaining watermelon outside for the birds when my husband came up. He said he was thirsty and would like some watermelon. Before I knew it he just reached his hand down in there and grabbed a huge chunk. He ate it with abandon, letting the juice run down his shirt. Now that’s got to be one of the joys of summer right there! I laughed out loud watching him eat and the birds gathering around to grab the chunks that fell.
When he was done the girls got the rest. That’s it: watermelon for the whole family!
