a farewell to summer: minty watermelon & feta appetizer

watermelon & heirloom tomatoes with feta cheese

watermelon appetizer

i’ve finally accepted the fact that my beloved summer is “officially” over, but it’s hotter than (the actual) summer (which was rather cool) right now, and there’s still plenty of good juicy watermelons all over the local markets. in fact, if i ignore the calendar, the shorter days, the slight chill to the morning air, and the schools in session all over the place, i can totally pretend we’re still in the middle of july or august. that’s why i served this cool, light, and colorful (let’s face it, summery) dish as an appetizer a few nights ago. it’s a new take on one of my favorite salads, minus the cucumbers, and reconstructed. deeeelicious!! better make some before our pretend summer is over!

  • watermelon, sliced and cut into the same sized squares
  • lots of fresh mint
  • heirloom tomatoes, sliced to the same thickness as the watermelon
  • french feta cheese
  • drizzle with (right before serving): extra virgin olive oil, fresh squeeze of lemon juice, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, 1/2 tsp raw honey (whisked together).

could this be any easier??
