Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad (GF)

tomato watermelon feta saladI can’t think of a more enjoyable way to welcome the summer season than having a BBQ. Well, maybe reading a good book on a white sanded beach could rival it, but let’s be real!

In Scottsdale, the temperature is already in the triple digits and we’re getting dangerously close to record-breaking heat for this time of year – really 112 before it’s even summer?? We Arizonans may be in for a brutal attack this year.

To beat the heat, make something cool and refreshing to pair with hot and crispy bbq items. I like to make a salad of watermelon, tomatoes, feta and fresh herbs.

Doesn’t that combo sound delectable?

That’s because it is!

Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad

The ingredients:

1 lb watermelon
1 lb red ripe tomato
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves
7 1/4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
The method:
  1. Peel the watermelon and cut into bite-sized cubes.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into quarters and toss in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar with the fresh mint and basil leaves.
  3. Scatter the feta cheese and oregano over the top to serve.
