Watermelon & Feta Salad with Fresh Mint

Posted by Donna-Marie Pye on



  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 oz baby arugula leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups (1-inch diced) seedless watermelon
  • ½ cup finely crumbled feta cheese
  • ⅓ cup Kalamata olives, drained and pitted
  • 10 mint leaves, cut into ribbons


  1. To prepare the balsamic drizzle: place vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until vinegar is reduced to a third, about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature. Set aside.
  2. To prepare the salad: place arugula leaves in a medium mixing bowl, lightly dress with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Divide dressed arugula between 4 chilled salad plates and top with watermelon chunks. Sprinkle each salad with feta cheese and garnish with olives and mint ribbons. Drizzle each salad with reduced balsamic vinegar and serve.
