  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt * to taste

Salad

  • 1 cup watermelon small cubes
  • 2 cups cucumber
  • 1 avocado small cubes

  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbled
  • ¼ cup mint leaves Torn in small pieces. Basil is good too if you don’t care for mint.

How to make the Watermelon Salad:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.
  • Carefully combine all of the salad ingredients EXCEPT FETA and drizzle with the dressing. Crumble feta on top to keep from getting soggy or serve on the side.
  • Serve immediately and chill any leftovers for a day or two. See post if you are making this ahead for an event.

Tips & FAQ’s:

If you are making this salad ahead of time, wait to dress it and add the feta cheese until you’re serving. The water in the melon will make the cheese soggy if it’s just mixed in and saved for later.
