Watermelon Tomato Salad

What says summer more than fresh watermelon?  We’ve hit the peak of summer and this little salad is the perfect side for a BBQ or a fresh and healthy lunch!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cubed (or balled) watermelon
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes (sliced in half)
  • 5 oz feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint (chopped)
  • 1/2 red onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Start by slicing open a watermelon and cutting out cubes or use a watermelon baller (if you ball like that, haha) as my Dad so perfectly displays! He’s such a baller 😉

Place into a large bowl, then begin slicing the grape tomatoes in half and add to the watermelon.

Next, add the feta cheese, mint and onion.  Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Before serving drizzle with the olive oil and vinegar and toss well.

This dish was a huge hit at my family BBQ last month, along with its friends the pulled pork, skillet potatoes, jicama slaw and smoked brisket!

… yeah, that’s a lot of food!  I ♥ BBQ’s!
