Watermelon salad

This watermelon salad with feta just screams summer to me. It is so delicious and fresh! Of course one thing to keep in mind is that you do need really good watermelon. Not the watery (no pun intended) variety that is completely tasteless. It’s sometimes hard to find good watermelon here I have to say.

But for this salad I found a delicious one. It helps when it is the middle of summer and all the fruit is delicious and sweet. This watermelon salad is definitely not complicated to make.

Easy to make

I used one of those round watermelon scoops to cut out the little balls. I thought it looked pretty, but of course there is nothing wrong with simply cutting the watermelon in chunks. Easier and probably quicker as well. Same as with the watermelon it is a good idea to pick really delicious tomatoes for the salad as well. I used cherry tomatoes here in different colors. Simply because it looks better, but taste is ultimately more important.

The watermelon salad doesn’t really need a lot of dressing to be honest. I just used some good olive oil combined with white wine vinegar. A good balsamic vinegar will also be perfect to use. In fact you could just drizzle over some balsamic and leave it at that.

If you take a look at the very last photo down below the recipe card, you can see that Gizmo, our old cat, loved the watermelon salad as well. Of course she was after the feta and not so much the watermelon πŸ™‚
