Ingredients

Lemon Vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey 
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole-grain Dijon mustard 
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 shallot, finely diced 
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Watermelon Salad:
  • 1 small watermelon
  • 2 bunches watercress, stemmed 
  • 1 pint small yellow tomatoes  
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, thinly sliced in strips 
  • 1/2 cup cubed feta
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted and chopped 

Directions

For the lemon vinaigrette: Combine the olive oil, honey, mustard, salt, shallots, lemon zest and juice and black pepper to taste in a bowl and whisk until combined.

For the watermelon salad: Slice the watermelon in half and use a scooper to scoop out watermelon balls. Put the watermelon balls in a large bowl and add the watercress, tomatoes, mint, feta and pine nuts. Add the lemon vinaigrette and gently toss to combine.

With a large spoon, scrape any remaining flesh from the watermelon halves to create hollow bowls. Add the tossed salad to the watermelon bowls and serve.
