|Tastes like SUNSHINE|
This salad is amazing.
It is quite possibly the most summery summer salad that ever existed.
When I asked the Bear what he thought of the salad...he replied that the salad was ‘boom-ting.’
This salad makes me very happy indeed.
That is all.
Watermelon and Feta Salad
For the salad:
200g feta cheese
½ red onion
A couple of handfuls of black olives
1 bag mixed salad leaves*
A handful of pumpkin seeds
3 or 4 sprigs of fresh mint
For the dressing:
Extra virgin olive oil
White wine vinegar
Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan and leave to cool. Deseed your watermelon and chop into bite-sized chunks. Finely slice the red onion. Peel and deseed the cucumber, before slicing into thin semi-crescents. Tear the mint leaves. Crumble the feta cheese. Combine everything together with the mixed leaves and the black olives. Mix up the olive oil, vinegar and black pepper to make a dressing, pour over, and toss to make sure everything is coated. Munch.
*Yes, that’s right, a bag of mixed salad leaves from the supermarket. No, I didn’t grow my own leaves – I don’t have the space in my flat. No, I didn’t buy them at the farmer’s market – I don’t fancy paying £100,000,000 for a bit of lettuce. It’s a salad for Pete’s sake, not a bloody lifestyle choice! I bought a bag of bog-standard mixed leaves from tesco and I am unrepentant, so there!**
**This may, quite possibly, be a slight overreaction. Soz.
