Watermelon Olive Mint Salad. Yum. Olives, feta cheese, and mint are combined with watermelon in this wonderful summer salad. My favorite Watermelon Salad.
Watermelon Olive Mint Salad With Feta Is Salty & Sweet!
This Watermelon Salad (with olives and feta cheese) is an awesome summer salad. The kalamata olives made this salad the best watermelon salad I have ever had. When I made it the first time, I thought it was so good, I ate the whole bowl for lunch.
Did you know that August 3 is National Watermelon Day? It’s time to make this salad again!
Recently, I have been focused on using mint in everything because my potted spearmint is growing in leaps and bounds. Plus, I really like the herb. I prefer spearmint to peppermint, but I like both. Which do you like best? Mint means summer to me. It’s refreshing and satisfying.
The Mediterranean Diet uses a lot of mint. Have you noticed this? Mint with lamb, eggplant, watermelon, beans. So many uses. I also make a simple Iced Mint Tea. It’s refreshing and caffeine free. Yum!
Such a Tasty Combination
This Watermelon Olive Mint Salad with Feta recipe is similar to Watermelon Cucumber Mint Salad, which is also super good, but I like today’s recipe too because the kalamata olives add an interesting, salty flavor to the dish. I looked online to see how others make similar salads and saw that some include kalamata olives. What an inspiration! Watermelon Olive Mint Salad is a little bit sweet and a little bit salty with a hint of mint. What a delicious combination.
