Sasha's Kitchen: Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

Watermelon is one of those quintessential refreshing summer fruits. Summer is really incomplete without it. It can be used so many different ways - as part of a salad or a fabulous summer cocktail, or simply on its own.  I was inspired to do something with watermelon and feta cheese after having a mouthwateringly delicious tapas appetizer earlier this summer at Miriam, a great Israeli restaurant in Park Slope. What I came up with is a simple and easy salad that showcases fresh summer watermelon. This makes for a delicious and low-calorie dinner or lunch and the flavors combine just perfectly.

Sasha's Watermelon Feta & Mint Salad
3 to 4 cups of freshly sliced watermelon
half a block of chopped feta cheese
3 T of fresh chopped mint
1 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar

Combine the watermelon, feta and mint and toss with the balsamic and oil dressing.  Serve immediately.


  1. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy watermelon. Yours looks very refreshing.

  2. Love watermelon. And this looks like a great use. Like the mint!

  3. Hi, Sasha!

    Just wanted to say I enjoyed your interview on the Haverford web page! It's nice to know there are other Fords out there in the food blogosphere.

    I look forward to reading more about your meals in Europe. The vanilla souffle with strawberry sauce sounds and looks SO good!


  4. I made something similar last night - watermelon, feta, and mint bites with balsamic vinegar!
