Summer salad greek style | Glutenfree

saladeete_2  I can see from here your interrogative face «what? Watermelon in a salad? With feta cheese? That’s it, Foodetcaetera got crazy!!” That’s not the case my little kitty, I did not go crazy, I did not make a mistake, and you read right! Let me explain you.

As you probably know (or not, how am I supposed to know that?) I got Greek origins and in Greece, you will often be served watermelon with feta cheese, as a dessert. (Yes, it means that you’ll eat something like your own weight in watermelon plus half a pound of cheese.) Greek people do things properly. It doesn’t surprise me anymore, but saying the face of the guest at whom I did offer it in the past, I started to understand that is not a logical mix for everyone. However, after the first schock, and when I see how fast the plates are getting empty, I can confirm that the mix is a winner. Anyway.saladeeteThe recipe I am writing about today is simple, fast to prepare, fresh and offers something different than the usual tomato-mozzarella mix. So, follow me if you dare:

For 2 people, you will need:

  • 2 tomatoes
  • ½ cucumber
  • ¼ watermelon
  • 1 cube feta cheese
  • A few mint leaves

I like to serve it with the following dressing:

  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

The watermelon will give some water, which will thin down the sauce and bring a little bit of sugary taste. The rest of the operations is quite simple, it is still a salad, so let’s say that you will guess it by yourself. I just want to advise you to finely chop the mint before adding it to the salad, so it will perfume perfectly the mix.saladeete_3And at home, I serve always the rest of the watermelon as a dessert…. With the rest of the feta. What can I say, I am glutton greek.

καλή όρεξη!
