Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint and a Balsamic Glaze


Oh, how I love watermelon season! There’s just something so spectacular about cutting into a cold watermelon on a hot summer day and taking that first sweet, juicy bite. So refreshing and satisfying!

I buy a big watermelon almost every time I’m at the farmer’s market or grocery store throughout the summer because I know that if I cut it, we will eat it. I mostly cut it into cubes and keep it in a sealed container in the fridge so it’s ready to go at a cravings notice.

We love having watermelon as a side with our meals, especially when we grill or smoke meats. It compliments the salty heat of the meat so well. Sometimes we’ll serve it as is, but I sure love kicking it up a knotch by making this watermelon feta salad with fresh mint and a balsamic glaze.

The salty, creaminess of quality feta combined with the sweet, crunchiness of a perfect summer watermelon along with fresh mint and the tang of the balsamic glaze is just so fabulous and refreshing.

They keys to this salad are a perfectly sweet watermelon and high-quality feta that literally melts in your mouth as you eat it.

It’s so so simple to make!

You’ll cut the watermelon into cubes and place it in a large serving bowl.

Crumble the feta over the watermelon. I recommend a block of sheep’s milk feta. It’s the best!

Next comes a  generous drizzle of balsamic glaze. You can find a bottle of balsamic glaze near the balsamic vinegars or in the produce section at the grocery store or you can make your own.

Finish the salad off with a sprinkling of chopped fresh mint and flakes of sea salt.

Enjoy!
