A good thing to do with watermelon, mint and feta cheese

24 Sep

The weather’s getting cooler, but there’s still watermelon on the shelves. Time to savor the last refreshing taste of summer!

Watermelon + mint + feta = it’s what’s for dinner

Full disclosure: This compilation of flavors is similar to a salad I enjoyed in California two months ago. I drew from that inspiration to mix this meal together:

  • Watermelon
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Feta cheese (I strongly recommend the full-strength Feta, not the non-fat)
  • Sweet onion

Other possibilities:

  • Cucumber
  • Black and/or green olives
  • Cilantro
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Dressing: Olive oil and a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar

This is the kind of salad that I ate and immediately looked forward to the next batch!


Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

    Others such as tomato paste, modified food starch, salt,
    yeast extract, caramel color, hydrolized soy protein, hydrolized yeast protein,
    beef fat, flavoring, hydrolyzed wheat gluten, dextrose
    are ingredients containing hidden MSG. A crock pot that can be removed from the heating element (or base) is helpful for browning meats.
    On the other hand, high setting will make it cook faster, which is
    for only 3 to 4 hours.
