Watermelon and Feta Salad

As soon as summer starts everyone fires up the grill! Not only are we excited to grill everything in site but also the sides that go with it. No doubt everyone is excited for coleslaw, potato, and macaroni salads. But of course, I am always looking for something fresh and new from the farmers market to bring to a BBQ!

An old standby for our family is the caprese salad, but my new favorite is starring watermelon! I have discovered that watermelon, feta, and olive oil can simply be the best snack in the summertime!

Watermelon Feta Salad

½ Seedless watermelon (rind removed), halved and cubed

8 oz Feta cheese crumbled or cut into ½ inch cubes

½ Cup of olive oil

Salt

Pepper

1. Whisk together the salt, pepper, and olive oil.

2. Pour over the watermelon and sprinkle the feta over it as well.

Note: There are other variations of this! You can add the watermelon with the dressing into an arugula salad. Some people like add red onion or mint to this recipe as well. Another yummy twist is adding a drizzle of balsamic glaze to the dish!
