Watermelon Salad


Simple, fresh, quick! Watermelon season is approaching, but I couldn’t hold out so I bought some and made this refreshing salad.  I served it as a first course, but you could serve this for dessert as well. There are many variations to this dish but I liked the simplicity of this recipe. Feel free to experiment…tomato or cucumber might add a nice crunch. You could skip the cheese, but it does add a light saltiness to the dish. Try ricotta or halloumi instead of the feta. Mint with, or instead of the basil would be tasty too. Summer is around the corner!

  • 10 ounces feta cheese
  • 4 1/2 cups large chunks of watermelon
  • 3/4 cup basil leaves
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • olive oil for drizzle

Slice or crumble the feta into small chunks.

Arrange all the ingredients, except the olive oil, on a platter and toss lightly. Drizzle the oil and serve immediately. Serves 4
