Looking for a quick summer side? Well, you need to try my Savory Watermelon Salad then! Chunks of watermelon with red onion, cucumber, basil and Feta topped off with a yummy dressing and you’re done. The perfect patio accompaniment!
Make as much or as little as you like! You can just serve one or you can serve a big group if you’re entertaining. Just change the amount of ingredients you add.
Large cubes of fresh watermelon
chopped red onion (I used one onion to serve six)
a handful of basil, chopped
1 English cucumber (you don’t have to peel English cucumbers!), chopped
crumbled Feta cheese
a good pinch of both salt and pepper
red wine vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
In a bowl, toss together your watermelon, red onion, basil, cucumber and Feta with a nice pinch of both salt and pepper. In a smaller bowl, whisk together your dressing. Use 1 part red wine vinegar to 3 parts EVOO (depending on how much dressing you like for the size salad you’re making). Whisk in a pinch of salt and pepper too. Toss your salad with the dressing and serve immediately.
See? Easy! If you like a lot of Feta, add more Feta. If you like a lot of basil, add more basil. Just add as much or as little as you need. This salad tastes like summer.
