A Peachy Watermelon Salad

A beautiful and fresh summer fruit salad! I've seen loads of watermelon salads out there on the internet and they always look so delicious and refreshing that I want one immediately. Fortunately  for me, I have a lot of gorgeous fruit ripening around my house. Except the watermelon of course.
Oh well, I went to the market and got a couple of those super sweet and seedless personal size watermelons because they store so well and I can use just 1/2 of one at a time since I'm only feeding 2 people most of the time.

Now, to put to use the beauties in my garden, I gather up a cup of fresh blueberries, a handful of mint leaves and a few of my large and lovely peaches.

I've never had a peach tree before and didn't know what I was missing. Wow! This is one of the best things I've ever had in my garden! It's crazy how much fruit one little tree can produce. 

This is certainly one of my favorite fruit salads in the world. You've got to try this combination. I think the blueberries add a marvelous punctuation of flavor to the dish so don't leave them out if you can help it.

The feta cheese gives this salad just a little saltiness to counter the sweet, another great cheese for this salad would be ricotta salata. 

Of course if you don't like mint, well, maybe try basil, but the mint is really the bomb! 

 
Peachy Watermelon Salad holds well for about a day, then it's looks start to go, but then that's why fresh watermelons, peaches and blueberries are so amazing. They are delicate and refreshing and fleeting, so hurry and make some of this salad before all the fresh summer fruits are gone.
Happy Summertime!
