Honeydew, Mint and Feta Salad

Sometimes recipes are born of necessity; this one certainly was. I'd bought this gorgeous chunk of grass-fed goat cheese at the local farmers' market (I eat less cheese these days than I used to, so when I get some I make sure it is the best quality I can afford). Hurricane Irene was set to arrive; I just knew that we'd lose power and I'd lose my divine, pricey cheese, as well as everything else in my fridge (my precious freezer stores of sauces and chili and soups! NOOOOOO!!!).


I had to act fast: I pulled out some other perishables that I wanted to use before they went bad and came up with this bright, refreshing, savory and sweet - you know I love that combo - salad. Plus, it just looks really pretty! Just what I needed for a dark, rainy, floody day.

Ingredients
serves 2-4
  • 2 cups honeydew melon, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, diced
  • 1-2T chopped fresh mint


Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Serve in that bowl, or portion out into smaller ramekins. Lookin' sharp in a green ceramic ramekin:

But I also like the sharp contrast with the red ramekin...


However you serve it, it is delicious (even when a big ol' storm isn't looming).

I hope that all of you who were affected by the storm are getting your homes and lives back in order!
