  1. In large bowl whisk together oil, mint leaves and vinegar; set aside.
  2. With a sharp knife cut around edge of watermelon to within 1/2 inch of rind. Then cut a deep cross through the flesh, leaving rind intact and reserving for later use. Scoop out each quadrant of watermelon and cut flesh into 3/4-inch cubes.
  3. Place in bowl with vinaigrette, watermelon flesh, grapes and feta; toss gently. Use watermelon shell for serving and if necessary, slice off a sliver of its bottom so it sits level. Spoon watermelon mixture into shell and sprinkle with nuts. Garnish with mint sprig. Serve immediately.

This was awesome!! Perfect mix of salty and sweetness. Yum! Didnt do the pine nuts and used white wine vinegar because I couldn't find the kind they called for. Was great the way I made it t...

This salad is amazing! By accident I used equal parts champagne vinegar and olive oil and it still tasted fantastic. The flavors explode in your mouth - delish!

it was a hit at potluck, very good, would make this again, lovvvve it, I added halved strawberries and used raspberry vinegar instead champagne vinegar(too sour)

This salad was very delicious! I added some balls of cantaloupe which were great. Very refreshing salad.
