Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad Recipe


For the vinaigrette:

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemons)
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots (1 large)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the salad:

  • 6 cups baby arugula, washed and spun dry
  • 1/8th seedless watermelon, rind removed, and cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 6 ounces feta cheese, 1/2-inch diced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) whole fresh mint leaves, julienned


Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, and pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. If not using within an hour, store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator.

Place the arugula, watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat the greens lightly and toss well. Taste for seasonings and serve immediately.
