    Default Chopped Veggie & Watermelon Salad

    Description: This type of chopped salad is often served for breakfast in Mediterranean countries. I find that I like it because its very cooling, and has a great crunch...and the watermelon adds a sweetness that is very satisfying. I found this recipe originally at epicurious.com and modified it to my liking to make it more user friendly :-)
    Serving Size: Serves 2-3 People
    Time: 30 Min (chopping)
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    Preparation:
    1. 3 plum tomatoes, chopped, drained
    2. 1/4 of a watermelon, chopped
    3. 1 green bell pepper, chopped
    4. 1 Tbsp olive oil
    5. 8 oz. Feta cheese, broken into small cubes or crumbled
    6. 1 8oz container non-fat greek yogurt
    7. 1 Tsp dried oregano
    Instructions:
    1. Add the chopped tomato, watermelon, and bell pepper into a mixing bowl with olive oil and 1/2 of the feta cheese (4 oz)
    2. Put the greek yogurt, other 4 oz of feta cheese and oregano into the blender and blend lightly until it is blended, but not enough to make it too liquidy
    3. Pour this sauce from blender over veggie/watermelon mixture and toss.
    4. Enjoy!

    This sounds just wonderful. After reading this, I had to go and snack on some feta cheese. I also posted up my Greek Salad recipe.

    I have never tried watermelon inside a non-fruit salad before. I bet it is great!

    Cheers,

    I am bumping this recipe because as it gets warmer outside, and the grocery stores start stocking whole watermelons, this is such a great, easy-to-make salad that appeals to almost everyone. Give it a try!! I am making some tomorrow, and I can't wait

    I forgot to add the most important ingredient - the MINT!!! This recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups fresh chopped mint...is there any way to add this into the recipe up above?
