Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon is a great refreshing treat in the summer months. It’s great as a salad or grilled to accompany a piece of fish. The salad below is a real treat, sweet watermelon, salty feta and aromatic mint makes this a perfect summer salad!

Substitute Cotija cheese for the feta if you wish.

Ingredients: Victory item #

  • Whole seedless watermelon # 280498
  • ¼ cup extra virgin # 205997
  • 3 whole limes # 280150
  • teaspoon Tabasco # 180235
  • 1 cup fresh mint # 280265
  • 1 ½ Cups crumbled feta # 310914

Instructions:

This salad is best prepared 1 hour or less before serving. I don’t add salt because the salt will draw the water from the watermelon.

Whisk together Olive oil, Fresh lime juice, and Tabasco to create a dressing.

Place watermelon in a large bowl.. Add dressing and chopped mint to the Watermelon and toss to coat add feta toss again and serve.

Foam Ban

As we indicated the New York Supreme Court has upheld the NYC ban on foam foodservice products. Dart will appeal the court as foam foodservice packaging provides cost, performance and environmental advantages compared to alternatives and is recyclable, as many communities can attest. Banning a recyclable product makes no sense.

As we await a decision on the appeal, we would like to share additional information from the City
regarding the ban:

  • Effective date: January 1, 2019
  • Enforcement date (fines will begin): July 1, 2019
  • Fines: $250 for the first violation; $500 for the second violation within 12 months; $1,000 for the third and each subsequent violation
  • Waiver requests/hardship exemptions (please see attached guidelines) may be considered from:
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Restaurants, mobile food establishments and stores with a gross income of less than $500,000 per location (chain food establishments with five or more locations are not eligible for waivers/exemptions)
