Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

Gluten-free, Vegetarian

A seemingly unlikely combo, but when it’s foolproof in its success and so charmingly bright, why wouldn’t you give it a shot? The fresh, sweet crunch of the watermelon balances the salty creaminess of the goat feta, and the citrus and mint cut in to make it a simply moreish mouthful. You’ll be tickled pink.

 

Ingredients
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

200 g of goat feta, cut into cubes

½ a large watermelon, cut into 1 inch cubes

3 tablespoons lime juice

Salt and freshly ground pepper

3 tablespoons of chopped mint leaves

 

Method

  1. Drizzle the olive oil onto the feta and set aside.
  2. Flick out any visible pips from the watermelon with a small knife.
  3. Gently toss the feta and watermelon together and pour the lime juice over top
  4. Drizzle the remaining oil from the feta over top of the mix
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste (go easy on the salt as the feta is naturally quite salty)
  6. Scatter with the chopped mint

Serves 4

NUTRITION BITE
Watermelon – packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature. Because watermelon has a higher water content and lower calorie content than many other fruits (a whole cup of watermelon contains only 48 calories), it delivers more nutrients per calorie than any other fruit or vege! And…despite tomatoes stealing most of the limelight when it comes to the potent antioxidant Lycopene, watermelon actually has the highest concentrations of lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable! Power to the pink!
