i am always on the hunt for refreshing summer recipes.
something light & crisp. something chilled & delish.
one of my fave summer recipes is a bizarre combo of flavors.
but it is surprisingly divine & wonderfully satisfying.
oh. yes... watermelon. basil. & feta salad.
i always look forward to enjoying this dish during the summer months.
plus this salad if as absolutely beautiful as it is delicious.
and that means extra bonus points in my book.
this is a great dish to make when putting on your hostess hat.
as it is oh so simple to make & only gets better over time.
as the hours go by. the flavors meld wonderfully.
not to mention. it looks fantastic on your table.
all you need is...
3 cups freshly chopped watermelon
3/4 cup chopped basil leaves
4 ounces feta cheese crumbles
1 small red onion. chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon agave nectar or honey
salt & pepper
and its as simple as this...
in a large bowl.
whisk together the oil. vinegar. lemon juice. agave. salt. & pepper.
place the watermelon in the bowl.
and then add the onion. basil. & feta.
give it all a great big toss.
garnish with more basil.
this is the perfect dish for these hot summer days!
