I have great news! It’s finally summer in the CLE! Holla! It has finally reached acceptable summer temperatures. As I mentioned previously, we were supposed to go camping this weekend and canceled our trip on account of rain which never happened… I’m not bitter because instead of camping it was hot as heck so we hit the pool! First time all summer.
So you know what else happens when it’s summer, right? (Besides the pool and camping, of course.) Picnic-style salads! I’m linking up with the Fit Foodie Mama and Powered by BLING today for Meatless Monday. Join us! But please make sure you follow the link-up rules, because link-ups are only fun when everyone participates. 🙂
I honestly can’t believe I haven’t shared this delicious recipe with you yet because it’s super easy, and really yummy. It’s a cool salad which is perfect for a hot summer’s day. Pack it up for a picnic or a BBQ and you won’t be taking home leftovers. Enter Watermelon, Cucumber and Feta Salad.
Watermelon, Cucumber and Feta Salad
- 1 red onion, sliced
- juice of 3 limes
- 6 oz crumbled feta
- 4 C watermelon, cubed
- 1 C cucumber, peeled and cubed
- 1 C kalamata olives
- 1 Tbsp dried parsley
- 1/2 of a .75 oz package mint leaves, chopped
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- fresh ground pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, pour the juice of three limes over red onions. Toss to combine and set aside. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, cucumber, feta crumbles, olives and herbs.
Add olive oil and gently stir, ensuring everything has a light coating of oil. Add the onions and lime juice to the watermelon mixture, and gently toss.
