Ingredient to Make Refreshing Keto Watermelon Feta Salad
- Feta cheese
- Pine nuts
- Mint leaves
- Balsamic glaze
- Salt to taste
How to Make Refreshing Keto Watermelon Feta Salad
I like to start with fresh chilled watermelon. If your watermelon is not cold to start with, you can always chill the salad before serving. Cold watermelon is the best on a hot summer day, I’m sure!
First, you cut the melon into cubes. Place it in a large bowl for serving. Then crumble the feta cheese over the watermelon. I recommend a block of goat’s milk feta. It’s the best.
After that comes a generous drizzle of balsamic glaze. You can find a bottle of balsamic glaze near the balsamic vinegar or in the produce section.
Finish the salad off with a sprinkling of chopped fresh mint leaves, pine nuts, and salt to taste.
Tips for Choosing a Good Watermelon
One way to ensure you’re buying a sweet and juicy watermelon is to check the weight. A watermelon with lots of juice will feel heavy for its size. Another indicator of ripeness is the color of the “field spot” – the area of the watermelon that was touching the ground as it grew. A ripe watermelon will have a light-yellow field spot. The darker the yellow, the longer it was left on the vine, and the sweeter it’ll likely taste. If the field spot is white, it means the watermelon was picked before it was ripe, so you should put it back and choose another one.
How to Store Refreshing Keto Watermelon Feta Salad
You should store this watermelon salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will only last for 1-2 days though, so eat it up!
