I am just back from a speaking engagement in Puerto Rico, where I had the chance to visit with great friends and have some delicious meals! But…you’ll have to wait for that, as it deserves a juicier post than I have time for (secrets of Kendra’s delicious grilled lamb coming soon to this blog!).
However, rather than leave you high and dry, here is a bright new salad to entertain you. It takes minutes to prepare, and — if Dr. Oz is to be believed — the combination of watermelon and a bit of balsamic is a powerful enzyme that will aid in digestion and perhaps weight loss.
So here it is: a fast and refreshing salad that use seasonal fruits and vegetables at their peak. And it’s pretty gorgeous too!
Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp balsamic vinegar
Grating of pepper
20-30 grape tomatoes, sliced in half (about one Cup)
1 Cup watermelon, cubed to match the size of the tomato halves (seeded if necessary)
1 tsp fresh mint, chopped
½ Cup crumbled feta
In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients.
In a larger bowl, place watermelon, tomato, feta and mint. Pour dressing over. Stir in mint. Combine all gently and serve.
