Apparently I have a “Summer Salad”. I made that up yesterday. But it’s divine and delicious and now I’ll have to invent a “Winter Salad”. I’ve never been a sweet and savory kinda gal, but this salad is just perfection to my taste buds.
Lex’s Summer Salad:
– a hefty helping of watermelon, cut into large cubes. I use two or four small melons for about 10 people.
– fresh mint. To taste. It really depends if you like things minty or not. I like my mint to be subtle…and I don’t like to chop it too fine either. I think “torn” leaves is better.
– feta cheese
Cube the watermelon. Eat lots while you do it. Toss in the mint and sprinkle with feta. I try not to be too heavy handed with the feta, it’s amazing how just a little goes a long way for flavor. Lightly douse with balsamic, again to taste. Hello, summer!
