Watermelon Salad with Feta & Mint

June 27, 2013 § Leave a comment


Backyard summer bbqs tend to be few and far between when it comes to summer in NYC, but the rooftop dinner party? Oh they are a plenty! And they most definitely make up for the lack of lawns. Last week VictoriaBeccaLisa, and I gathered at Hitha’s show stopping rooftop for a summer themed blogger potluck (in honor of Lisa’s visit to NYC). In typical girl fashion, we ended up with three veggie dishes. The food was so incredibly good, we had to share the recipes! I brought a watermelon, feta and mint salad, Becca made an insanely delicious panzanella, and V made the ultimate veggie comfort food- ratatouille. Washed all down with Hitha’s addictive sangria and some chilled white thanks to Lisa, this meal was truly summer at its best. You can get the recipe for my salad below, and then hop over to the other girl’s sites for the rest of the recipes and recaps!

What’s your go to summer pot luck and cookout dish?





Watermelon Salad with Feta & Mint adapted from the Kitchn
Serves about 6

  • 10 chilled cups watermelon cubes, from about 1/2 of a small seedless watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 8 oz feta cheese drained and crumbled
  • 1 cup packed minted leaves, roughly chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper and flaked sea salt

Place the watermelon in a large bowl. Toss gently with the rice wine vinegar. Add in cheese and mint and toss gently to combine. Top with a general pinch of flaked sea salt and several grinds of fresh black pepper. If the watermelon is not cold, chill in fridge for at least one hour before serving.
