  • Mix watermelon, onion, and mint together in a separate bowl. Drizzle dressing over watermelon mixture and add blue cheese; toss well.

Cook's Note:

I prefer Gorgonzola cheese, but I good quality Maytag or Roquefort will work also.

Canola oil can be substituted for olive oil.

Watermelon can be scooped into balls instead of cubes.

I made this salad to take to a friend's party. I added some kale to add more color and it was fairly tasty. I would suggest making sure the watermelon is cold and firm- it gets watery after awhile. You cannot make it beforehand too early! Read More
