Summer Salad with Watermelon, Mango & Feta Cheese

Nothing says Summer to me quite like a salad. I love the fresh greens and the fresh fruit available as soon as the weather starts to warm.

I also love to start each meal with a salad …in truth, I sometimes make the salad my entire meal.

This is one of our favorite salads which combines a favorite from everyone in my family. My son could eat his weight in watermelon and my middle daughter absolutely loves mango. My youngest is always sneaking the candied pecans and my favorite is the Feta cheese. My husband loves Raspberry vinaigrette on any salad that he eats. But when you put them all together, you get something truly special. Summer salad with watermelon, mango, and feta cheese. Delicious!

Summer Salad with Watermelon, Mango & Feta Cheese Ingredients

To Make the Candied Pecans

1 lb pecan halves

2 cups sugar

4 cups water

In a saucepot heat 4 cups of water with 2 cups sugar.

Bring to boil, add pecans and cook for about 10 minutes.

NOTE: The pecans are done when you can break them open and they are no longer white in the middle.

Drain pecans from liquid and place on a lined sheet pan.

Bake at 275 for about 20-30 min, or until pecans are no longer tacky to touch.

To Make the Vinaigrette

1 cup fresh raspberry

1 Tbsp granulated sugar

3/4 cup good balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp honey

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped

Mix the berries with the granulated sugar. Set aside and allow to rest for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, mash the berries with a fork and then wisk in the rest of the ingredients.

TO MAKE THE SUMMER SALAD SALAD

Toss the field greens with the raspberry vinaigrette and place on a plate. Each salad should have about two generous cups of lettuce.

Add about one cup of fruit. Sprinkle with candied pecans and feta cheese.

Enjoy!

    I love every ingredient in this salad – I just never would have thought to put them together since I usually use feta on tomato cuke salads. Wow. Just bookmarked the page. Picking up the ingredients this weekend and will certainly be making this!
