Watermelon & Feta Salad

Ingredients

2 lbs of watermelon, sliced

1/3 c feta

salt & pepper

lime juice

1 sprig of basil with large leaves torn

Method

To prepare the watermelon and feta salad, begin by slicing the watermelon into irregular pieces (bite-sized, rind removed). Sprinkle the watermelon slices with feta cheese, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Add an extra burst of flavor by squeezing fresh lime juice over the salad. Tear large basil leaves and sprinkle them over the salad for some added freshness. Toss and serve it immediately!

Suggestions

Taste: If you like a little more punch, chili lime seasoning in place of salt and pepper is a great way to add a little spice and contrast to the sweetness of the watermelon. Don’t be afraid to season with your heart. This salad makes a great appetizer or happy hour snack with patio margaritas.

Presentation: Salads on a platter allow more of the ingredients to be enjoyed by everyone, and makes for a striking dish. If you choose a platter there is no need to toss. If you want a bowl, aim for smaller watermelon pieces.


 

I’ve been very impatiently waiting for the tomatoes in the garden to ripen. My truest form is as a tomato girl. Few things bring me more than a Caprese Salad with garden heirlooms and fresh herbs. So while I wait, I’ve been playing around with this heavenly salad—juicy, refreshing, bright, with that summer saltiness. What started as a placeholder for my precious appetizer, is now a contender for favorite summer salads.

It’s basically my famous watermelon margaritas (coming soon) on a plate.

Feel free to customize it. If I've harvested too much basil, I'll substitute lemon balm. To add a touch more richness, I drizzle olive oil and white balsamic. Looking for some crunch? Walnuts and even blackberries add a whole new dimension.

With the sun just finally joining us, this dish offers a little solstice celebration on a plate. Enjoy!
