Watermelon-feta salad

This salad is so easy, it’s almost embarrassing to post it. But I will!

It’s made from watermelon cubes, crumbled feta cheese, chopped fresh mint, and peach balsamic vinegar. That’s it!


Assemble your ingredients: about3 cups (1 1/4 pounds) of watermelon, 1/2 to 2/3 cups of feta cheese, 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped mint leaves, and about 1 tablespoon of peach balsamic vinegar.


Seed and cube the watermelon, and place in a large bowl. Add the crumbled feta cheese (adding more or less, depending on personal preference). Then add at least two tablespoons of fresh chopped mint leaves (slightly less if using dried mint leaves).


Drizzle with the peach balsamic vinegar, toss lightly, and pour into a serving bowl. Either serve immediately (the best) or cover and chill until ready to serve. And enjoy!

Because I’m also a wine blogger in my copious spare time, of course I had to try to figure out what wines to match with this. It came down to two: a classic sparkling wine and a lovely rosé made from Lemburger (also known as Blaufränkisch). And both are, of course, Virginia wines. (See my GoughPubs Facebook site for the tasting notes about these two wines.)
