    Watermelon Greek salad

    Juicy watermelon, rich olives and salty feta...the fresh, summery ingredients in this salad are delightful together. Enjoy as a barbecue side dish or package up for a picnic.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    ½ red onion, thinly sliced
    ½ Waitrose & Partners Watermelon 
    1 cucumber
    20 pitted Kalamata olives, torn in half
    100g feta, crumbled
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    4 tsp red wine vinegar
    5 mint leaves, finely shredded
    ¼ tsp dried oregano

    Method

    1. Put the sliced onion in a bowl of cold water and leave to soak while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Carve the watermelon lengthways into three wedges, then cut away the skin and slice into 1½cm-thick pieces. Halve the cucumber lengthways and scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon, then slice into half-moons about ½cm thick.

    2. Arrange the watermelon and cucumber on 4 plates, then scatter over the olives and feta. Drain the onion and add to the salad. Drizzle each plate with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp vinegar; season. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the mint and oregano.


    Cook’s tip 

    Soaking raw onion in cold water helps to tone down its pungency before it is added to a salad.
