Watermelon-Feta-Mint Salad

3 ingredients, less than 10 minutes and you have an easy, healthy and refreshing salad!

Watermelon is loaded with vitamin C and beta-carotene and it has only 45 calories per cup.

I really enjoy the combination of sweet, salty and tangy together. I find the watermelon juicy enough that the salad doesn't require any kind of dressing. This is a great appetizer on a hot summer day!

Serves 4
  • Half a small, seedless watermelon = ½ petite pastèque (sans pépins)
  • 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup) = 115 g de feta, émiettée
  • A few fresh mint leaves = quelques feuilles de menthe fraîche

Remove rind and cut watermelon into ¼” cubes. Cut mint into fine julienne.
Place watermelon cubes in a 4 small bowls, add mint and mix gently. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Top with crumbled feta and serve right away. Enjoy!
