Watermelon Salad

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

 Since I tried this recipe, I can’t stop making it and telling everyone about it. It’s a perfect match of sweet juicy watermelon flesh against the sharp and salty Feta cheese and olives, balanced with mint flavour. It is Summer on a plate for me!

WATERMELON SALAD

(Marry Berry’s recipe from Absolute Favourites)

Ingredients:

½ cucumber
½ small watermelon, peeled, deseeded and cut into 2cm cubes
200g feta cheese, crumbled into small cubes
50g pitted black olives in oil, halved
1 small bunch of mint, chopped

For the dressing:
4 tbsp olive oil (or oil reserved from the olives)
juice of ½ lemon
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

1. Peel the cucumber with a potato peeler, cut in half lengthways and, using a teaspoon, scoop out and discard the seeds. Cut into crescent shapes.

2. Layer half the watermelon, cucumber, feta and olives in a bowl, repeat again, then sprinkle with the chopped mint. For the dressing, whisk together the oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and pour into the bowl. Serve chilled.
