Michael Symon's Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon--as evidenced by its name--has a very high water content, which makes it great for detoxing your system. All you need is one cup of watermelon a day in order to start burning fat and keep your bloating at bay. 

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp minced shallot
2 tbsp fresh mint, chiffonade
1/2 cup olive oil
8 oz red seedless watermelon, cut in to 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup crumbled greek feta cheese
2 tbsp thinly sliced scallions, white and green parts
2 tbsp toasted sliced almonds

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, garlic, shallot, mint, and olive oil. Season with salt and give it a taste.

Add the watermelon to the vinaigrette and toss to evenly coat. Gently fold in the feta and scallions then serve, sprinkling the toasted almonds over the top.

Serves 6.
