Watermelon & Mint Salad

Updated: Jul 3, 2021

Watermelon, Mixed Greens, Mint, Basil, Feta, Kalamata Olives, Balsamic Glaze


 



 

Nothing says summer more than Watermelon salad when it is in season! I put a spin on it to play with salt, acid & fat to complete this #milehighdish. Its fresh, juicy and provides a fantastic texture as the centerpiece of a cool summer starter. I started the creative process with greens, basil and mint from the garden and rounded out the salad with black kalamata olives and feta mixed with basil oil.




Ingredients


Salty: kosher salt, black Kalamata olives


Sweet: watermelon, balsamic glaze


Fat: olive oil, feta cheese


Acid: champagne vinegar


Greens: arugula, kale, mint, basil












Plating


I like to plate in 3s, starting with basil oil and placing cubed watermelon in segments of 3s across the plate, leaving room for the leafy greens in the middle.














Finish


Next I topped the watermelon bunches with a mixture of feta, chopped olives and olive oil, then topped with chopped mint, basil and placed the dressed greens in the middle. I finished with more whole basil, mint and balsamic drizzle. Last but never least, don't forget salt and pepper to finish!
