Sometimes the most quick and simple salads are the most rewarding in flavor. This simple summer salad has no lettuce, while the base is base from fresh watermelon and rich feta cheese. It is perfect on hot days and gives you enough salt that you crave for during the heat. We made this dish at the summer place a couple of times and most often enjoyed it by the lake. I love to set the table here and after lunch it’s great to dip those toes into the water when it gets too hot.
Watermelon Feta & Egg salad
- 1 watermelon, roughly sliced
- 1 packet rich feta, roughly sliced
- 3 small Spring onions
- 3 boiled eggs, roughly chopped
- 1 packet Crispy bacon
- Handful Roasted cashews
- Pinch of Salt/pepper
- Pinch of Fresh Thyme
- 1 tablespoon Olive oil Lemon
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
This salad is extremely easy to make that literally requires a little bit of chopping and merging all the flavors together. Begin by cooking the bacon (I placed them into an oven for a good 20 minutes until crispy) and boiling the eggs. Simultaneously, you can roast the cashews on a dry pan with a bit of salt, until they receive a bit of color for a few minutes. Once ready remove to the side to cool.
Meanwhile roughly chop the melon, feta and finely dice the spring onions. Take a big bowl or platter and add all the ingredients together. Once the bacon and eggs are ready, roughly mush them into the mixture. Squeeze some lemon juice on top along with good quality olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper, the cashews and thyme twigs in the end. This makes a wonderful simple summer salad that is light, yet rich with flavor.
