My Top 3 Salads

 

Watermelon, Mint & Feta Salad

The coolness of the watermelon, the tang of the onion and the creaminess of the feta is awesom

   

 

INGREDIENTS

 
  • 1.5kg watermelon; cut into small cubes
  • Half red onion; sliced thinly
  • Feta Cheese; as much as you want (I use The Cheese Board Feta with Garlic, Herbs & Olive Oil that we sell in store)
  • 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds; toasted
  • Fresh Mint leaves
  • Aurelio Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar (available in our store and online)

 

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

In a large salad bowl add watermelon, onions and feta cheese.
Spoon some of the flavoured oil from the feta tub over the salad.
Sprinkle toasted almonds and mint leaves over salad.
Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and a crack of black pepper (yes...trust me!)
Serve at your next BBQ.

You can cook the corn cobs on the barbecue if you like.
Just make sure they are charred!

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice and zest

120g feta, crumbled

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

Heat pan and add olive oil.

Cut off kernels and cook in pan for 3 mins and add red capsicum and chilli. Mix and allow the corn to char. May take 5 mins.

Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Add the eschallots and feta cheese.

Sprinkle over herbs and add salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy!
