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
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
- Peel the watermelon and cut into bite-sized cubes.
- Cut the tomatoes into quarters and toss in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar with the fresh mint and basil leaves.
- Scatter the feta cheese and oregano over the top to serve.
