Bobby's Lighter Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (4 lb) seedless watermelon, rind removed and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese

Preparation

To make the dressing, whisk together the lemon zest, juice, olive oil and salt in a small bowl. Combine the watermelon, shallot, mint and basil in a large bowl. Lightly toss with the dressing. Sprinkle with the feta; serve immediately or chill up to 1 hour before serving.

 

Test Kitchen Tip: Seedless watermelons vary in size. Bobby likes to use the small round variety. They weigh about 4–5 lbs each. If they have any seeds, they are very small. Their rind is thinner than larger watermelons, so it's much easier to remove. Not only does this save you prep time, but since they are small, they take up a lot less space in the fridge!

I never knew wat

I never knew watermelon could taste so good!! So many different flavors and I added pine nuts so a bit of texture too. This is going to all my summer picnics and I will have a bowl for me cause the hubby and son won't try it LOL more for me!!
