  • 1 small watermelon (3 pounds), rind removed, cut into 1-inch chunks and chilled
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice or lemon juice (both are excellent, see which one you prefer)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Small pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese (sheep feta recommended for the creamiest texture and best flavor contrast)


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.
  • Pour the dressing over the chilled diced watermelon along with the mint. Toss gently to combine. Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese on top and serve immediately.


* This is also terrific with some arugula added to it.
