Cheesy Watermelon Salad

A friend made too much cheese samosa filling so we did some creative problem solving and threw somewatermelon in the bowl with it. The results were delightful, so I’m sharing it with you now! It’s a nice sweet-and-salty snack/refreshing summery side dish.

Ingredients:

  • Watermelon
  • Feta cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • Fresh mint leaves

The exact amounts don’t matter much. We didn’t measure anything and it turned out just fine. Just throw stuff in a bowl until you get a proportion that tastes good to you, basically!

Directions:

  1. Dump feta and shredded mozzarella in a big bowl.
  2. Chop mint leaves and stir them into the cheese mixture.
  3. Chop/scoop your watermelon into bite-sized pieces and stir it together with the cheese/mint. (You can buy pre-chopped watermelon if you want to save time/energy, but it can be a bit expensive. I personally like the “lazily scoop out chunks of melon with a spoon” method– easier than chopping but cheaper than pre-chopped melon.)
  4. Ta-da! Now you have some cheesy watermelon!
