Pistachio Feta Watermelon Salad

Whoever first came up with the watermelon feta pistachio salad situation qualifies as a genius in our book because it’s simple yet brilliant. And, while we don’t know who that person is, we know they were on to something good. This Pistachio Feta Watermelon Salad recipe takes that watermelon salad combo and raises it a notch with the addition of mint, pistachios, and a pomegranate molasses-balsamic drizzle.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

It’s really adaptable so, if you’re not feeling the nuts, leave them out or add toasted pumpkin seeds instead. If dairy isn’t your thing, be sure to top the watermelon with really awesome sea salt. And, if you like it as is? Well, then we should really get together for a dinner party sometime soon!

Recipe Ingredients

These are the ingredients that you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • pomegranate molasses
  • balsamic vinegar
  • honey
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • mini watermelon
  • roasted and salted pistachios 
  • fresh mint leaves large leaves torn
  • crumbled feta cheese

How To Make This Recipe

These are the instructions that you’ll have to follow to make this recipe:

  • Make The Pomegranate Molasses-Balsamic Sauce: Combine the pomegranate molasses and balsamic in a bowl and add enough honey to balance out the tartness. Add a pinch of salt, and a crack of pepper, taste, and adjust seasoning as desired.
  • Make The Salad: Peel the watermelon then cut into 1-inch thick slabs. Cut each slab up so you have some wedges. To serve, arrange the wedges on a platter, top with pistachios, mint, and cheese, drizzle with oil, a few spoonfuls of the drizzle, top with a pinch of salt, and serve.
