Watermelon and cucumber salad with feta cheese
It’s been quite some time since we last delighted you with some culinary “extravaganza”. And by extravaganza we most certainly mean something easy to make but fancy looking. And what is easier and more perfectly suited for a summer brunch than a salad?
With no further ado, let us introduce to you the perfect balance between sweet, light and refreshing, featuring two extremely hydrating foods: watermelon and cucumber. For seasoning we used basil this time, but it can be easily substituted with some fresh mint as well.
Fresh basil leaves
The first step is to slice the cucumber (you can peel it if you prefer)
Cut a slice of watermelon and deseed it.
Dice the watermelon
Cut the feta cheese into small pieces. You can also crumble it if you prefer.
Roughly crush a handful of nuts to add some crunch to the salad
Sprinkle the nuts, chopped basil leaves and olive oil on top, then lightly toss the salad.
