This sweet-and-savory fruit salad recipe is all about the quality of the watermelon: you want its flesh to be really sweet so that all the savory ingredients--the capers, the olives, the feta--shine. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2017

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a small saucepan over high heat. Pat capers dry and add to the hot oil. Cook, stirring, until crisp, 1 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. (Discard the oil.)

  • Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup oil in a large bowl with olives, vinegar and a generous grinding of pepper. Add watermelon, basil and mint and gently toss to coat. Arrange in a large shallow serving bowl. Sprinkle with feta, almonds and the crispy capers. Garnish with sea salt, if desired.
