  • 1 small (approximately 2 pound) orange melon (I used a mini Sugar Kiss) - see notes
  • approximately ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • approximately 2 teaspoons Feta cheese, crumbled


  • Slice the melon in half and use a spoon to remove the seeds. Then cut the melon into as many thin slices as possible (about 1/2-inch thick).
  • Arrange the melon slices on a serving platter and sprinkle with the oregano — use more or less if desired. I like a very thin and even sprinkling.
  • Now use your hands to evenly distribute the crumbled Feta. Again, you can use more or less if desired.
  • Serve! (You can make this up to an hour ahead. Simply cover the platter with plastic wrap and refrigerate.)


I think Sugar Kiss melons are the sweetest melons of summer. You can also use cantaloupe or any other melon you like that's sweet and in season.
