  • 1
    In small bowl, using wire whisk, mix vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir in mint.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix watermelon, cucumber, onion and 3/4 cup of the feta cheese.
  • 3
    Pour dressing over watermelon mixture; toss gently to combine.
  • 4
    Sprinkle salad with remaining feta cheese. Garnish servings with additional mint, if desired.

  • Try adding other additions to your salad, such as blueberries, strawberries or kalamata olives.
  • The salad can be chilled for up to 2 hours. The watermelon keeps releasing its juices so the longer it stands, the more liquid will gather in your bowl.
