I am not too sure how your summers are, but for us here in California, it can be hot! And when summer time hits, what’s the one fruit that comes to mind? Watermelon!
When I was younger, the camp I would go to had a watermelon eating contest every summer. I don’t remember if I ever won, but I sure recall it being a good time. I’ll never forget what the older kids told me – that since I ate the seeds, a watermelon was going to grow in my belly. Good thing that never happened 🙂
When this summer rolled around, we thought mixing a watermelon with feta would be a good Greek inspired dish.
The saltiness of the cheese mixed with the sweetness of the melon created an amazing flavor. Add some Greek olive oil for dressing and voila, a perfect combination.
Jane likes the bite that a red onion can give, so we decided to add that as well. We loved the flavor that it provided.
While this dish goes hand in hand with a warm summer’s day, we think we could definitely have this year around as the flavors are simply delicious.
