  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 5 pounds watermelon, cut into bite-size cubes

  • 1 small sweet onion (such as Vidalia®), thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint, or more to taste

  • 6 ounces crumbled blue cheese


  1. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until smooth.

  2. 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.
