Watermelon, Feta and Mint Salad


SaladsSavourySidesStarters
Normally I serve this salad in the summer, however I've decided to share it with you now because it also works as a wonderful Canapé, and with party season on the horizon I though it might help with your no doubt fabulous plans.  Serve this as a Canapé, Starter, or Side Dish to BBQ Chicken or Fish.
What you'll need

200g Packet of Feta
Half a Small Watermelon
Half a Small Red Onion
5 Sprigs of Mint
Lots of Black Pepper
4 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

For the Salad

  1. Cut up the Watermelon so that you have chunky cubes with as few seeds as possible.
  2. Very finely slice the Red Onion, a mandolin is great for this.
  3. Take 2/3rds of the Mint and ruffly chop it, retain the rest whole.
  4. Combine the Watermelon, Red Onion and chopped Mint in a serving dish and generously cover in Black Pepper.
  5. Using your hands crumble the feta over the top and then add the Olive Oil and Balsamic.
  6. Finally garnish with the remaining mint.

Top Tip

This recipe also works wonderfully as a Canapé.

Simply cut the Watermelon into cubes, the Feta the same size and make little towers, add the Mint and Onion as a little flourish on the top and I add lots of Black Pepper and Honey as a Drizzle.
