Watermelon, Mint and Goat Cheese, Welcome Summer!


The second I start seeing watermelons out in farmer’s markets and grocery stores, I get all gleeful and mouth watery.  I think it’s one of my favorite fruits and in fact one, I do a few different things with.  This salad/snack dish above is one of those things.  It’s so easy and it’s great for a warm afternoon snack, for a picnic, a potluck and even dessert.

No measurements necessary.  Trust me.

Watermelon Mint And Goat Cheese Salad

  • Watermelon
  • Goat Cheese crumbles
  • Mint

1.  Cut your watermelon up in cubes.

2.  Chop up a good hearty handful of mint leaves.

3.  Mix in a large bowl along with a good portion of the crumbled goat cheese.  Chill until you’re ready to serve.

NOTE:  This does not keep well.  If you try to save left overs, it becomes a very unsightly mosh of cheese and melon juice.  Still fine to eat, but not lovely to look at.  I recommend making as much as you know will be eaten.
