Watermelon and Feta Salad

Summer is salad season, but salad doesn't have to be boring lettuce and tomato on a plate or that Australian favourite coleslaw. If you'd like to try something different try this watermelon and feta salad. Serve it icy cold from the fridge on its own as a starter or as a side to grilled chicken.

Juice of 2 limes
1 large red onion, cut in half then thinly sliced
1 medium watermelon,  cut into 2cm cubes (about 15 cups)
1 large cucumber, peeled and cubed
250g feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup fresh coriander, finely shredded
cracked black pepper
sea salt

In a small bowl, pour lime juice over red onion and set aside to marinate. In a large bowl very gently combine the watermelon, cucumber, feta cheese and coriander. Season with black pepper. Use your fingers to gently toss the watermelon salad with marinated onions. Chill until ready to serve. Season with sea salt just before serving.

  1. Cath, i have a question. I have left numerous comments on your blog and yet not one has ever shown up. In fact, no ones have.

    1. How did you leave your question? Apart from the comments, which you can see are working, and the Contact form, I'm not sure how else you could ask a question unless you are going through the Cheapskates website? I do my best to answer questions, sometimes it can take a while if I am particularly busy.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
