  1. Watermelon Feta Salad


    May 13, 2013 by Emily

    There’s watermelon in the stores! Giant, delicious, CHEAP watermelon! While I’ve been known to cut one in half and go at it with a spoon and call it lunch, sometimes you want to spice things up a little. This salad is a light dish that’s a perfect start to a warm weather meal, especially if your eating outside!


    What You’ll Need:

    1 Cup Uncooked Orzo
    1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
    2 Cups Watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    4 ounces Feta, Cut into small cubes
    2 Tablespoons Mint, Sliced Thin
    2 Tablespoons Basil, Sliced Thin

    Cook the orzo in heavily salted boiling water until al dente, about 6-8 minutes, drain completely and immediately toss with olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking. Once the orzo is cool, toss with the remaining ingredients  in a medium serving bowl and enjoy!
