Had a version of this at a gourmet Country Club golf banquet. Very classy, very easy, low-cal & delish. Everyone asks for the recipe & I'm always asked to bring it to summer get-togethers.

Prep:

20 Min

Ingredients

1/2 medium
seedless ripe watermelon - chunked
2/3 c
fresh mint (not spearmint if possible) chopped
6 oz
fat free crumbled feta
1/2 c
slivered toasted almonds (or sunflower seeds)
2/3 c
splenda
2/3 c
lime or key lime juice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix it all up. Serve or refrigerate for a day. Note: If your meal has no other oils or fat in it, splash a bit of light-flavored olive oil on this salad for better vitamin absorption.
2
I've made many versions of this, including with other melons or sturdy fruit, as well as chunks of jicama. Use what's sweet & ripe. Smaller amount great with cottage cheese instead of feta for lunch or cool summer dinner.
