Tomato and Watermelon Salad with Feta

Tomatoes and watermelon are a match made in heaven. If you haven’t tried the combo before you should soon (like tomorrow!). I looked through several recipes before deciding how I wanted to put my salad together. Feta was usually always added but other than that there were tons a variations going on. I thought some diced up cucumber would be nice for crunch and also decided to add a little green with some arugula.

I got lucky while shopping yesterday and found nice sized tubs of pre-chopped organic watermelon at Ellwood Thompsons for only $1.50 a piece! I grabbed 2 of them 🙂

Tomato and Watermelon Salad with Feta

  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed watermelon (make sure it is chilled)
  • 1/2 english cucumber, diced
  • 1 big handful arugula
  • crumbled feta cheese (I used about 1/2 of a block)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste

Method

  • In a salad bowl combine the first 5 ingredients. In a separate small bowl whisk together the next 5 ingredients to make a vinegrette. Pour vinegrette over salad…toss…enjoy!
