I think Watermelon is one of those fruits that is best eaten cold. And before it becomes mushy. If you’ve never sprinkled salt on ice-cold watermelon, you’re missing out! You absolutely MUST try it. I know it sounds weird, but it’s divine! With that in mind, when one of my very favorite aunties texted me that she had a recipe for a watermelon-feta salad, I knew I wanted the recipe. I thought it sounded like the perfect summer salad – one that everyone (even KB) would like. And since her sister, my momma, is in town for a month we made this salad and LOVED it!
Of course this recipe is super simple too – just cut everything up and serve! It calls for jalepeno too – which makes it a little spicy, but you can omit that if you want.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix watermelon, cucumber, diced jalepenos and green onions and vinegar and sprinkle with sea salt. The original recipe called for some mint, but I didn’t have any on hand and didn’t miss it.
Mix to combine.
Scatter prosciutto and feta cheese over top of salad. Add freshly cracked pepper to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
