Healthy Recipe: Watermelon Salad
There are plenty of spins on the simple watermelon-feta-mint salad. We like this one from The Mediterranean Dish: an easy, fresh and super-light Mediterranean version with fresh herbs and a honey-lime dressing.
For the Honey Vinaigrette
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp lime juice
1 to 2 tbsp quality extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt
For the Watermelon Salad
1/2 watermelon, peeled, cut into cubes
1 English (or Hot House) cucumber, cubed (about 2 cupfuls of cubed cucumbers)
15 fresh mint leaves, chopped
15 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, more to your liking
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, olive oil and pinch of salt. Set aside for a moment.
In a large bowl or serving platter with sides, combine the watermelon, cucumbers, and fresh herbs.
Top the watermelon salad with the honey vinaigrette and gently toss to combine. Top with the feta cheese and serve.
