RECIPES:
Watermelon Feta Salad
Ingredients:
2 oz diced Red Watermelon
1 oz diced Yellow Watermelon
1 oz crumbled Feta Cheese
.5 oz thin sliced Red Onion
Chiffonade Mint
Reduced Balsamic Vinegar
Salt

To build salad:
Toss red watermelon, half the yellow watermelon (reserve other half for later), crumbled feta, sliced red onions, and mint chiffonade together in mixing bowl. Take care not to mix too much so colors are not muddled and are still bright and vivid. Pile the mix on a large plate, in the center so it has a lot of height and there is negative space all around the salad. Place the remaining cubes of yellow watermelon on top of the salad, and top with more mint chiffonade. Drizzle with reduced balsamic with one pass.
