When summer arrives it means fun in the sun and a variety of fresh fruit by the bushel. Yay for summer! Although our fridge is usually packed with fresh fruit throughout the year, we purchased our first watermelon of the season (a tad early, still officially spring) just last week. There’s something about cutting into that first watermelon that signals summertime is really, really here. And boy, does a watermelon get gobbled up super quick around here!

(P.S. I’m enjoying these fabulous Porcelain Enamelware Mixing Bowls from Barn Light Electric. Many thanks to Barn Light Electric for sending me a set of these super functional, heavy duty and heirloom quality bowls. They are used almost daily in our home, and are perfect for prepping. Of course, they are also nice to use as serving dishes too. Our daughter is already eyeing them! I do like these white ones, but they have an array of colors, as well as a graniteware pattern to choose from too!)

A refreshing Blueberry Watermelon Feta Mint Salad made with a simple balsamic dressing for a perfect sweet and savory salad for any summer celebration.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces olive oil
  • 1 ounce balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 8 cups diced watermelon
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup rough chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (or more if you like!)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and diced red onion.
  2. Add the diced watermelon, blueberries, mint and feta cheese to bowl. Gently toss to coat.

This salad tends to get watered down the longer it sits because of the amount of water in the watermelon. If wanting to prep ahead, keep diced watermelon separate until an hour or so before serving, then toss together to serve.
