    Fresh Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint (Gluten-Free)


    Celiac.com 09/05/2014 - If you want an easy, tasty summer salad that will make a splash at your next potluck, look no further than this fresh watermelon feta salad.

    This simple recipe combines juicy watermelon, sweet onion, feta, cilantro and mint, with a dash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to deliver a world of flavor.

    I like mint and cilantro, but you can add parsley, watercress, or whatever you like.

    • Chunks of 1 seedless watermelon
    • 1 large sweet onion
    • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
    • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, as desired
    • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
    • 6 whole mint sprigs
    • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds or pine nuts
    • Salt and pepper

    Directions:
    Cut the flesh from the melon and cut into bite size pieces, removing and discarding the seeds, and set aside.

    Peel and slice the onion into bite-sized pieces.

    In a small bowl, mix vinegar, salt, pepper until salt is dissolved.

    Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a few drops at a time. Add chopped mint, cilantro, and seasonings, to taste. Top with sunflower seeds or pine nuts, as desired.

    In a large bowl, combine the melon, onion, and feta. Pour the dressing over the melon mixture and toss gently until everything is coated and evenly mixed.

    Garnish with mint sprigs.

    Serve on plates and garnish with mint leaves.
