 Eating, Done Right.

Are you trying to focus your attention on eating more fruits and vegetables during Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month? Edgehill’s executive director Chris Barstein shared a recipe that’s the perfect, tasty combination of sweet and salty. Not only is this watermelon and feta salad refreshing and delicious, it’s healthy and low in calories.

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole seedless watermelon (about 8-10 pounds)
  • 2 cups sheep’s milk feta cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ cup of high-quality extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup of lime juice
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • 3 Tablespoons Shallot, Minced
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ¾ Cup Fresh Mint, Chiffonade (thin strips)

Directions:

  1. To create the dressing, combine and whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, shallot and Tabasco in a small bowl.
  2. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large salad bowl, cut your watermelon with a Parisienne scoop into melon balls.
  4. Slice fresh mint into thin strips.
  5. Add cheese, mint and dressing to the melon.
  6. Toss all ingredients.
  7. Serve immediately, as this salad should not be made ahead.
  8. Enjoy!
