Soothing Watermelon Salad for Two
A few large handfuls of lettuce—any kind will do, from crunchy Romaine to mesclun mix
3 to 4 cups cubed watermelon
2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (you may want more or less, depending on how much you love it)
3 T. chopped mint
Juice of one juicy lime
Sea salt and fresh-ground pepper
1. Spread lettuce on two good-size plates.
2. Divide watermelon, feta, and mint, and arrange them atop the plates.
3. Sprinkle with lime juice. Half a lime per plate is probably plenty, depending on how juicy it is. Try a cube of melon midway through the sprinkling to make sure you aren't making the salad too sour.
4. Season with salt and pepper, but be careful not to oversalt, given the feta.
That's it! Insanely easy, deliciously cool, and perfect for hot summer nights.
