Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint


If  you have ever flown Alaska Airlines then you know they have the nicest Flight Attendants ever!  Do these people ever have a bad day?  I can't possibly imagine serving 130 people stuffed into a tube and never getting a bit cranky! But these guys rock it...every day!  (okay I'm a bit prejudiced having worked at Alaska's sister company, Horizon Air for 14 years, but not as a Flight Attendant, I don't have what it takes... like the ability to not want to stuff screaming children in the overhead bin...)  These guys are truly amazing, every child remains in their seat for the entire flight, quite an accomplishment in my  book.

So on a recent trip to Tucson it is no surprise that I met one of their finest, Denise W.  Not only is Denise a sweet heart of a flight attendant, she knows how to cook!  She shared this recipe with me and it's been on my mind to blog it for a month now.

It's super easy, super healthy and so good you can't stop eating it!  If you are not a fan of mint, cilantro makes a nice alternative.

Hope you can enjoy it before summer ends!

Ingredients
1 small watermelon, cubed and seeded
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar (Denise says not to substitute this ingredient, especially with balsamic or you get a rather unattractive salad)
1/4 cup crumbled Feta cheese
2 tablespoons minced mint or cilantro
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper


Toss and serve...how easy is that ????  Love it!  Thank you Denise and happy travels!
