Watermelon Salad Pizza

Watermelon feta salad is a favorite of mine. It may see weird to the uninitiated to combine creamy, salty feta cheese with juicy, sweet melon, but the stark contrast of the flavors works phenomenally well together. Just as watermelon is balanced gorgeously when served with savory grilled steak, the tang of the crumbled feta, plus some bright lemon juice for good measure and a good glug-glug of fruity extra virgin olive oil turns this classic summer snack into a positively savory salad. 

Even better, it's pretty fun to eat. 

It all starts with a seedless watermelon. You really only need half of one for this recipe, but I usually buy them whole anyway, since they're such a tasty, healthy snack to have on hand. Look for a spherical melon with a dark green rind (and make sure it's seedless--seeds are no fun to deal with in this preparation). 

This is a salad for 4 people, and each person gets his or her own "pizza," so slice the melon into 4 rounds (or more, obviously--this recipe is very easy to scale up or down).

Next, we turn our watermeolon rounds into "pizzas." This happens magically, by slicing each one into 6 triangular slices and placing it on a plate. See? It's basically a pizza.

Then a light layer of thinly sliced red onions gets scattered over each slice. Feel free to go extra-light on the onions if you're not a fan.

Then do the same with that creamy, crumbled feta cheese. Remember to get every slice so each bite has a little of everything.

Next, some mint leaves, for freshness.

 

And finally a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil, some black pepper, and a tiny touch of salt. 

It's pizza time.

 OK, fine, It's watermelon salad pizza time.

Still pretty damn good. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium seedless watermelon (7-8 inches in diameter, end removed) sliced into 4 1 1/2-thick rounds $3.50
  • 1/6 medium red onion, thinly sliced $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 4 ounces creamy Greek, French, or Bulgarian feta cheese, crumbled $4
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves $1 for a bunch
  • juice of 1/2 lemon $0.50 for a whole lemon
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • freshly ground black pepper Pantry
  • salt Pantry

Recipe Serves 4

Directions

  1. Cut each watermelon round into 6 triangular slices, as if cutting a pizza.
  2. Arrange the slices in a circle on 4 dinner plates, so it looks like you have 4 pink pizzas.
  3. Top each "pizza" with the red onions, making sure to get some on each slice.
  4. Scatter the feta over each pizza, making sure it is is distributed evenly to each slice.
  5. Do the same with the mint, scatteing it over the slices, making sure there is at least one leaf on each slice.
  6. Drizzle the "pizzas" with the lemon juice and the olive oil.
  7. Top with cracked black pepper and the tiniest sprinkle of salt (the feta is quite salty, so it only needs the tiniest touch of salt).
  8. Serve immediately.

I eat Granny Smith apples daily with Bulgarian Sheep Feta, drizzled with honey. I have been eating watermelon and Feta for a long time too. Usually a minimalist it is tempting to try your recipe. Probably not the oils but yum.
