WATERMELON SALAD

              This is such a beautiful salad....love the little white feta cheese on the striking red watermelon! THE best salad to serve at a party! tastes lovely. Personally, I wasnt too happy about the feta cheese combination.......but all my friends loved it


INGREDIENTS:
3 cups chilled watermelon, cubed like in the picture
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
kosher salt to season
1/2 cup mint leaves, chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled



PROCESS:
  • Chop the watermelon into cubes and place in a colander, to strain off excess juice.
  • in a small bowl, mix together the extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, pepper and salt
  • Transfer the watermelon into a salad bowl and add a few spoons of the olive oil dressing.
  • add the mint leaves and the crumbled feta cheese and toss.
  • Serve 

notes:
  • prepare the salad just before serving. 
  • you can refrigerate the rest of the dressing
