Watermelon Caprese Salad 

By: Pamela Santaluce

Switching tomatoes for watermelon, mozzarella for feta and basil for mint leaves makes this salad the most refreshing side dish or appetizer.


3 cups watermelon

8 oz feta or goat cheese

1/2 cup mint, roughly chopped

1/4 cup pecans

Olive oil, sea salt, pepper to taste

Honey, optional


ONE: Using an ice-cream scooper or anything similar, scoop out as many servings of watermelon as desired and add to serving plate.

TWO: Sprinkle raw pecans over watermelon, crumble feta or goats cheese over-top and Add fresh mint leaves

THREE: Drizzle olive oil generously, sprinkle sea salt/pepper and add honey overtop if you prefer more sweetness.

COOKING TIP: Roasted pecans by drizzling maple syrup and cayenne pepper or chili powder for extra kick (spread and lay in a flat oven-safe tray and bake for 10-12 min at 350F)
