When you cut the watermelon into squares, the watermelon and feta come together on the plate to offer a flavor combination you might not have imagined that truly showcases all the ingredients. A drizzle of Kosterina Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar before serving enhances all the flavors on the plate.


(Serves 3-4)

  • 1 small watermelon
  • 8 oz 365 Everyday Value Feta Cheese Block, packed in brine
  • ¼ cup hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 2 to 3 springs of mint, leaves removed from stem
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Kosterina Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar


  1. Slice the watermelon in half and remove the rind. Cut the watermelon into 1 and 2-inch square pieces.
  2. Cut the feta block into 1 and 2-inch squares.
  3. On a large, flat serving platter, arrange the watermelon and feta in a geometric pattern, leaving ¼ inch space between pieces.
  4. Sprinkle hazelnuts and mint leaves on top of the watermelon and feta 
  5. Sprinkle the entire dish with salt.  
  6. Drizzle the Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar over the finished dish just before serving. Enjoy!

We all love a good massage. Well, so does kale. Many people think of kale as a tough, leafy green. However, a quick massage with lemon juice and Kosterina Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes fresh kale tender and delicious. We paired our massaged kale with a quick cherry quinoa mix and Kosterina Fig Balsamic Vinegar that elevates the tart sweetness of those dried cherries. You’ll want to make this nutritious, flavorful salad every day!
