Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

This is the ultimate summer salad. It would be perfect to bring to a post-beach BBQ or picnic, and its my new go-to for any leftover watermelon. The saltiness of the feta complements the sweetness of the watermelon so well. Since it is so simple, the key is to use high quality ingredients, particularly for the feta and olive oil. You can try different combinations by adding spinach, arugula, cucumbers or slivered almonds.  Enjoy!

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad
1/4 watermelon
4 oz. crumbled feta (my pick: pastures of eden from trader joes)
6 sprigs fresh mint
Good quality extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper, to taste

Cut watermelon into cubes and add to a bowl. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic over the melon, then crumble feta on top. Tear or chop mint and add to the bowl. Sprinkle sea salt & pepper, and mix until combined.
