Watermelon blueberry feta salad is a refreshing summer treat. Fresh watermelon and blueberries are topped with feta cheese, freshly chopped mint, and a light balsamic vinaigrette.
This watermelon blueberry feta salad is the first of three recipes in my summer salsa series.
Technically speaking, this isn’t a salsa, it is a salad. That is because the fruit isn’t chopped, pureed, or diced, as it would be for a salsa. Also, I’m pretty sure that I have never seen feta cheese in a salsa before. This delicious salad is in my series because it’s one of three recipes that I made during a recent episode of WISH TV’s IndyStyle.
I will share the other recipes, for Fresh Peach Salsa and Blueberry Corn Salsa, very soon.
In the mean time, you can watch the IndyStyle episode and get all of the recipes here:
Using bottled balsamic vinaigrette dressing will save you some time, as will using a seedless watermelon. If you prefer to make your own dressing, have at it. I have been so busy lately, I am taking all of the short cuts that I can right now. ????
One ingredient that should not be substituted is the fresh mint. The texture of dried mint would not be appealing in a salad, and the flavor isn’t even close in comparison to using fresh mint.
There are no nuts in the salad, but adding chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans would be very tasty.
I hope you have a chance to make this watermelon blueberry feta salad, and I really hope that you love it!
If you have extra blueberries and watermelon, consider making watermelon lemonade and a Buttermilk Biscuit Topped Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler for dessert.
