This refreshing watermelon goat cheese salad is tangy, sweet, and savory, the perfect dish for summer! And, it's easy to make in only about 15 minutes.
The salad can be made with room-temperature watermelon, but will taste more refreshing if the watermelon is chilled. You can either: (1) place the whole watermelon in the fridge for a few hours and then cube it (this is easiest with a small watermelon); or (2) cube the watermelon and then place it in a covered container in the fridge for 1 - 2 hours before using.
I used Diamond Crystal Kosher salt for this recipe, which is lighter and flakier than Morton Kosher salt. To substitute Morton Kosher salt or regular table salt, use only 1/2 teaspoon in the dressing. Or, add salt to taste.
If you prefer, the salad can be assembled in a large bowl rather than a platter. To a large bowl, add the watermelon, nuts, onion, dressing, and half the mint. Toss gently to coat the ingredients with the dressing. Then, crumble the goat cheese on top and garnish with the remaining mint.
