Amazing Watermelon and Feta Cheese Salad (Gluten-Free)

Summer's almost over, but if you want a quick, easy to make salad that tastes amazing and makes you feel like you're basking in the July sun, then try this little trick: Toss some feta cheese over watermelon chunks. Then sit back and enjoy as the looks on your guests faces move from puzzled to intrigued to outright delighted. Be sure to relish the 'Mmmms' and 'Ooooos' and 'Awwws' that follow as they make their pleasure known.

With a simple recipe like this, it's hard to know who gets first credit. I had it at a friend's house over the summer, and loved it. My friend topped off his version with fresh mint and red onions, which I don't think add much to the salad.

This version omits the onions, and substitutes arugula for the mint. If love mint, or onion, then by all means toss in some into the salad. This recipe serves about four people, so scale it according to your needs.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ large watermelon, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • l small bunch of arugula (or mint), chopped

Directions:
For best flavor, choose a seeded watermelon with a yellow patch on one side to show that it has been allowed to ripen on the vine.

I like to chill the watermelon first. Any good feta cheese will do for this recipe.

Remove and discard as many black seeds as possible. Put the watermelon and feta in a salad bowl and toss to combine.

Serve immediately.

If this continues for more than another day or so get to your doctor. Go now if you are showing signs of dehydration. Hospitals are full of nasty bacteria and viruses you need to make sure that you haven't picked up something. I hope this resolves for you soon.
