Don't be put off by the unusual combination of ingredients; the sweet-salty pairing of melon and feta cheese is wonderfully compelling. Any variety of melon (or an assortment) will work; just be sure to choose ripe, fragrant and juicy specimens for the best results.
|3 cups||melon, such as honeydew, watermelon or your choice (peeled, seeded and cut int 3/4-inch cubes)|
|1 cup||crumbled feta cheese (preferably Greek or French)|
|4||thinly sliced scallions (green part only)|
|2 tablespoons||thinly sliced fresh basil (chiffonade)|
|1/4 cup||extra-virgin olive oil|
|1 tablespoon||balsamic vinegar (or more to taste)|
|1/2 teaspoon||Sea salt|
|freshly ground pepper (to taste)|
Combine the melon, feta, scallions and basil in a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Refrigerate the mixture until serving time.
Place the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small glass jar with a lid and shake vigorously to combine.
Just before serving, pour the vinaigrette over the melon mixture, tossing to combine. Serve immediately.
