Spinach, Watermelon & Feta Salad


Yup, you heard correctly... Watermelon, spinach and feta!!! I first learned of a watermelon and feta salad last summer when my chef buddy Aman made a DELICIOUS watermelon, feta and mint salad which made for a cool and summery side. The sweetness in the watermelon is balanced by the saltiness in the feta... Love this combo! I added nuts and avocado for some texture and made a homemade mint vinaigrette with mint from our garden which is running wild. Here is the recipe:
1 large bag baby spinach (~ 6 cups)
2 avocados, pitted and coarsely chopped
2 cups watermelon, cubed 
1 cup cubed or crumbled feta
Candied pecans (if desired)
1 Tbs. red wine vinegar
2 tsp. agave (I didn't have this so I skipped it)
2 Tbs. chopped fresh mint leaves
Zest of 1 lemon
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Stir dressing in a bowl, then top on salad ingredients right before serving.
