This right here is perfect for summer. It’s a sweet and salty combo that takes less than 10 minutes to make. During the summer, this is one of my favourite snacks: freshly, sliced, chilled watermelon with crumbly slices of feta. It’s so yummy, healthy and hydrating.
IngredientsWhole or half a watermelon (12 cups of cubed fruit)
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
3 whole limes, juiced
1 1/2 tsp of Himalayan salt
3/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup of fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 cups of crumbled feta (sheep’s milk feta preferred)
- Cut rind of the watermelon. Chop fruit into 1 inch chunks.
- In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, fresh lime juice, salt and black pepper to create dressing.
- Place watermelon in a large salad bowl. Pour dressing and chopped mint over the watermelon. Toss gently to coat.
