Watermelon Salad

I love watermelon. Some of my best memories are of my dad bringing home a watermelon, cutting it in half and we’d sit in the den with our respective halves, towels across our chests, passing the salt shaker back and forth because just a little sprinkle brings the flavor out.

Last night, at our annual Stephen Ministry salad supper, someone brought a watermelon salad with olives and feta and red onions. It was delicious except for the olives. I hate olives. I didn’t quite get my fill of it last night so I picked up my own watermelon today and decided to make my own watermelon salad, with a few modifications.

I don’t really have a set recipe here. I didn’t think I needed to measure anything out for something as simple as this. So, here’s what I tossed together:

Watermelon chunks
Feta cheese crumbles
Mint, chopped
Cipollini onions, diced small
Drizzle of EVOO
Splash of lemon juice (maybe half a lemon’s worth)
Dash of salt (I’d suggest sea salt)
Reduced Balsamic Glaze (you can buy or make this and for me, the more of it, the better)

Super refreshing, super yummy and super easy.
