New Summer Favorite: Watermelon Salad

with one comment

I’d seen variations on watermelon salad making their way around the web, and I figured it was time to make my own. Much like most of my food endeavors, this recipe was dictated by what I had on hand, so although most watermelon salad calls for mint I went all out and threw in some basil. Partnered with the sweet taste of the watermelon and the salty feta, you’ve got a salad that’s both refreshing and interesting. The new summer must have.

Ingredients

  • small seedless watermelon, chopped into cubes
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts

Preparation

  • Mix onions and lime juice in a small bowl and let sit while you chop watermelon and basil.
  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Chill before serving.
