Watermelon & Feta Salad

Summer Bliss Watermelon Feta Salad | White Balsamic Reduction


  • Author: Lauren

Description

Juicy sweet watermelon, tangy feta cheese and little bursts of refreshing mint tossed in sweet white balsamic reduction.


Ingredients

White Balsamic Reduction

  • 1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar in the raw* (you can substitute granulated sugar)

Watermelon Feta Salad

  • 1/2 container Spring Mix  (about 2 cups)
  • 4 cups watermelon, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 8 ounces feta, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
  • 10 large mint leaves, chiffonade**

Instructions

White Balsamic Reduction

  1. Combine sugar and vinegar in a saucepan.  Cook on low for 18 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Mixture should simmer but not boil and will burn easily if heat is too high.
  3. Let cool 5-10 minutes before using.  Sauce will be slightly thickened, similar to maple syrup.

Watermelon Feta Salad with White Balsamic Reduction

  1. Cut watermelon and feta, set aside together in a bowl.
  2. To chiffonade the mint, lay the mint leaves flat on top of each other.  Roll tightly and slice in thin slices.  Add to the watermelon and feta and gently toss together.
  3. In a large serving bowl, add spring mix and top with watermelon, feta and mint.
  4. Drizzle with white balsamic reduction.  Gently toss together to coat the leaves or serve as is (watermelon will give off juice and mix with the reduction so spring mix will not end up dry if left as is.)

Notes

*granulated sugar can be substituted.  I like to use sugar in the raw for the slight caramel undertones it adds to the reduction.
