Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits . Its also perfect for the summers because of its water content . Apart from the usual watermelon juice or Sorbet , this salad is an interesting option .
It is actually a greek salad which uses Feta cheese and watermelon.
Few recipes also call for thinly sliced onions. So you have a choice of using it or avoiding it.
It tastes amazing when served chilled .
500 gm – Watermelon , diced
200 gm – Feta cheese , crumbled
2 tsp – olive oil
juice of one lemon
1 tsp – Vinegar
1 tsp – Honey
Salt and pepper to taste
2 handfuls of Mint leaves , Torn
How to :
In a large salad bowl , Mix together olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, honey , salt and pepper . Whisk it well. Add in torn leaves of Mint. If you plan to add sliced onions , add them here and keep in the refrigerator for a while.
Toss in the chilled watermelon pieces. Crumble the feta cheese over it. Mix it very lightly or else the feta cheese becomes pasty .
Serve right away with a few mint leaves over it.
