This colorful, sweet yet savory salad might just be my perfect summer salad. The cold cucumber with little bursts of chilled watermelon makes the hot days just not seem so miserable.
You have to check out these adorable bowls I picked up at TJ Maxx for the girls. They have these cute little cats on them. Cats seem to be a theme this week. Of course they are made in Japan. I really want to go to Japan and shop for all kinds of cute stuff. Well the girls were at school today when I was making this salad and I decided to use their bowls, cause you know what they say…When the cat’s away… Ok, enough cat talk.
The salad is really simple, thinly sliced English cucumber, diced watermelon, diced red onion, fresh feta, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and freshly cracked pepper. Toss it all together and your done. I love this salad cold, cold so I always chill the watermelon prior to cutting it.
- 1 thinly sliced English cucumber
- 1 cup diced watermelon
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- freshly cracked pepper to taste
- Toss all ingredients together. Serve chilled.
I just love how the sweetness of the watermelon combines with the saltiness of the feta. Tell me, what is your favorite summer salad?
