28 Jul Watermelon and feta salad with basil
Few things are better than fresh watermelon in summer. Most of the time I stick to plain watermelon slices, it’s just so refreshing and tasty on its own. But as far as my main meals go, watermelon is usually out of the picture. And to be honest, this recipe does sound a bit weird; watermelon and feta cheese don’t necessarily sound like a good match, but trust me on this – they are. This watermelon and feta salad with basil is the perfect easy lunch for a hot summer day, or a great side dish for your bbq.
Watermelon salad, with protein and flavor and just enough ingredients for you to call it a meal. Honestly, if you’re in the middle of a sweaty summer heatwave and can’t be bothered to cook, this salad will be your best friend. I have even made it without the cheese, just simple watermelon with herbs, as a tasty and refreshing breakfast.
How do you add watermelon to your dinner?
Watermelon, with its sweetness and freshness, it absolutely perfect for a quick salad, and works really well as a refreshing side dish. In this recipe I have simply added some fresh herbs and feta cheese, but you could of course incorporate more fruits or veg for a more filling salad. We all agree that watermelon is great, and it definitely deserves a spot at your dinner table.
