Ingredients

  • 1.5 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon flaked salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4.5 cups cubed watermelon seeded and rind removed
  • ¼ medium red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ¾ cup fresh basil ripped
  • ½ cu fresh mint ripped
  • cup pistachios chopped
  • 6- oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Instructions

  • Add the chili powder, flaked salt, and black pepper in a small bowl and mix. Set aside.
  • Place the cubed watermelon on a serving dish or in a bowl and season with 1 teaspoon of the spice mixture.
  • Next, sprinkle the red onion, blueberries, fresh basil, fresh mint, and pistachios evenly over the watermelon.
  • Lastly, sprinkle the feta, lemon zest, and the remaining spices over the salad.
  • Taste the salad to make sure there is enough salt and enjoy immediately.

Tips & Notes

  • Because watermelon has a lot of water, be sure to eat this salad immediately. The salt will draw out the water and make all of the ingredients mushy if not eaten right away.
  • We do not recommend preparing this salad beforehand.
  • Feel free to use any nut you’d like in place of pistachios.
