New recipe from Renee: watermelon, feta & mint salad

Especially for the warm summer days, Renee put together an unlikely combo. But when foolproof in its success and so charmingly bright, why not 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

Serves 4

  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 200g of goat feta, cut into cubes
  • ½ a watermelon, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped mint leaves

Method

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