Watermelon Feta Salad

Some people crave only sweets, some only salty things- me, I’m a salty-sweet kind of girl. In the winter, it’s popcorn and M&M’s, and in the summer, it’s salad! The combination of the sweet watermelon, salty feta and tangy lemon vinaigrette is one of the most refreshing tangy summer salads you will ever have. Makes a great party appetizer too!

½ seedless watermelon, sliced into bite-size chunks

1 cup feta cheese, crumbles

For the Lemon Vinaigrette:

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp. olive oil

 1 ½ packets Splenda or 1 Tbsp. sugar

Pinch of kosher salt

 Fresh mint for garnish

It is best to plate each salad individually rather than mixing it all in a large bowl; the feta tends to melt when you add liquid.

On each plate, place a generous amount of the bite-size watermelon. Sprinkle chunks of the feta cheese on top as you desire. In a separate bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and Splenda. Drizzle lightly over the watermelon and feta; top it off with a sprinkle of kosher salt. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
