This cubed watermelon, peach, and feta salad is almost too pretty to eat…almost.
Today I’m keeping this post short and simple in honor of this short and simple recipe. I know you’ve got summery things to do and I have summery things to do – so I’m going to leave you with this beautiful salad that’s perfect for taking to a last-minute dinner at a friend’s house. That’s what I used it for – 10 minutes of prep and I was out the door and on my way.
Prep is the key word here – taking the time to cut your watermelon, peaches, and feta into similarly sized cubes will make the salad all the more attractive – almost like something you would get at a fancy restaurant! Do me a favor and use a REAL cube of quality feta; not the low-fat, crumbly. chalk-like stuff. It adds an element of luxurious indulgence to an otherwise super healthy side. You won’t regret adding it, I promise! Fresh produce + creamy cheese + fruit olive oil + aged balsamic + allllll the basil/mint = summertime bliss.
Enjoy these last few lazy weeks of summer!
- 3 cups watermelon cubed into 1'' pieces
- 2 cups yellow peach cubed into 1'' pieces (about 2 large pieces)
- 8 ounces good quality feta cheese cubed into 1'' pieces
- 2 tablespoons fruity olive oil such as California Olive Ranch
- 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons fresh basil shredded thinly
- 2 tablespoons fresh mint shredded thinly
Arrange the watermelon, peaches and feta down the middle of a long platter. When ready to serve, drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. Sprinkle with herbs. Serve immediately.
