Watermelon and Feta Salad


It has been so hot in Perth over 35 degrees almost every day and until next week. I used to love watermelon in Summer. We used to go camping up on the mountains with my family in humid and hot days. Nothing beats the cool rainforest to avoid the heat. Bringing a whole watermelon was a must. Sometimes you don’t even need a knife. Just hit it against a rock and break like that. A big wedge each. We smile like a wedge of the watermelon. So refreshing and rehydrating snack! Then after a quick bite we go back to playing in water and hunter games. That’s my memory of this summer fruit.

Simple dressing made of lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt brings up the full flavour and sweetness of the watermelon. Don’t forget salty and earthy feta cheese and bitter arugula leaves compliment each other as well. I am in lust! We had a platter and this salad for lunch today.


1 cup of watermelon
1 stick of feta cheese
1 cup of arugula leaves
1 teaspoon of e.v.o.o
a splash of balsamic vinegar
a squeeze of lemon juice
sea salt
