Watermelon & Feta salad

It was 26 degrees celsius here today! Woo hoo! Summer's finally here which means barbecues are here! This watermelon and feta salad is my take on Nigella's original version which is on Nigella's website, and it is the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue!

What you need:

Watermelon, deseeded and cubed
Cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
Feta cheese
Red onions, sliced and steeped in lime/lemon juice. Use lime juice if you prefer a sharper taste.
A handful of coriander, chopped
A handful of mint, chopped

Place cubed watermelon in a bowl.

Add cherry tomatoes

Crumble in the feta cheese. I don't like cubes of feta, but you could add cubes if you prefer.

Add in the onions steeped in lime/lemon. I steeped the onions for about an hour to cut their pungency and get a lovely pinkish colour and bring out their natural sweetness.

Place in refrigerator to chill. Just before serving, add a handful of chopped fresh coriander and chopped fresh mint. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This is one of the most refreshing salads I have tasted....the sweetness of the watermelon and tomatoes works beautifully with the saltiness of the feta and the tanginess of the lime juice and the onions. A perfect summer salad. Enjoy!
