Watermelon and Tomato Salad with feta

I know what you may be thinking, but this salad is delicious  - a little taste of summer. A good friend of mine recently made this for a barbeque and I couldn't stop thinking about it. It is refreshing, tasty, low fat and pairs well with most summer meals! Taking bits and pieces from different recipes I found this to be quite the crowd pleaser:

1/2 cup Olive oil 
1/4 cup Red wine vinegar

3 cups cubed watermelon
2 cups grape tomatoes cut in half length wise
1 small cucumber, peeled
1/2 red onion diced
7 oz Feta cheese
Ground pepper
1/2 cup fresh Mint, chopped
1/2 cup fresh Basil, chopped

For the Salad:
Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and cut cucumber half cross wise into small half moons. Dice onion into small thin pieces. Mix together cucumber, watermelon, onion, tomatoes, feta, mint and basil. In a separate bowl mix together olive oil, vinegar and pepper. Pour dressing over salad with enough vinegar to coat. Serve immediately.

*If you are taking this to a party wait until it is about to be served to pour dressing over salad.

  1. I made this tonight, but realized I didn't have red wine vinegar. I used a balsamic vinaigrette instead and it was super yummy. Great recipe B!
