Watermelon, Mint and Feta Salad

Remember my pictures on Monday of our family reunion food?  Today I thought I'd share my new recipe for watermelon salad.

This salad screams "refreshing" to me.  The creamy feta offsets the bite of the mint, while the watermelon adds a wonderful sweetness.

When I made this for our family reunion this past weekend, some of my family said they could do without the feta.  Whatever floats your boat; if you're not a "stinky cheese" fan, you can easily omit it!

Watermelon, Mint and Feta Salad

8 cups seedless watermelon, diced
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, sliced thin
4 ounces feta cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoon good-quality balsamic vinegar

First, peel and slice the watermelon.  The best way to do this easily is to cut off each end of the watermelon, and then sit it upright.  Once upright, cut off the sides of the peel like this:

Once the peel is removed, begin to dice the watermelon until you have about 8 cups.  Place the diced watermelon in a bowl.

Add the mint, red onion, feta cheese, salt and pepper to the watermelon.  Toss gently to combine.

Serve the watermelon salad, drizzling with a bit of balsamic dressing on top with each serving.

Serves 12.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
