1 Small Watermelon chilled (personal sized)

4 oz crumbled Feta

3 Tbsp. Lemon juice

1 Sprig fresh mint

4 Tsp. Honey

¼ Tsp. Salt



Cut watermelon into bite-sized cubes (1-2 inches) and separate into for bowls. Crumble approximately 1 oz feta over each bowl (more if you prefer). To make dressing, combine lemon juice, salt, and honey and set aside. Wash and remove 12-16 medium-large mint leaves from sprig and chop very finely. Add mint to dressing and stir. Spoon dressing evenly over salads. Garnish with a mint leaf and serve.

Alternatively, serve as an hors d’oeuvres by putting toothpicks through the watermelon cubes with a small amount of feta and mint, then drizzle with small amount of dressing.
