Greek Watermelon Salad
Its almost end of summer in some parts of the country but in San Diego it feels like the summer has just started. Scorching heat makes you feel so dehydrated. Its very important to take sufficient liquids. I was looking for something really cold to eat. I found watermelon that I cut and stored it in the fridge. But this time I wanted to try something new. When I was looking into my fridge, I happened to bump into the crumbled herbed feta cheese. I used some for my pasta dish and I had some leftover. It was too little to use for another elaborate dish. An idea stuck my brain. Why not try something with watermelon and the cheese???!!!! Sounds interesting right???? Yes its actually a Greek salad. I googled with these ingredients and I found a good salad recipe. I added some extra ingredients to my taste. Thought will share it with you all.
Baby Watermelon (Seedless preferred) - Half cut into small cubes.
Herbed Feta cheese - 2 tbsp
Cilantro - To garnish
Pepper - 1 tsp
Just cut watermelon into small bite size cubes.
Drizzle feta cheese on top and some pepper too. The feta cheese is salty so there is no need to add additional salt. Usually I like to add just salt and pepper to my watermelon as it boosts the sweetness of fruit. But when we add feta, there is no need for salt. I used herbed feta since I had it. You can also try it with regular feta and add any herbs of your choice to the salad. It tastes great for summer!!
Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve it cold.
