Week 25: Watermelon Salad

The Recipe
~1/2 watermelon
100g feta cheese
30g pine nuts
50g rocket salad
1/2 red onion
Some sort of flavoured vinegar according to taste (balsamico, white wine... whatever strikes your fancy)
Flake salt
Fresh basil (optional)

Slice the onion thinly and cut the watermelon into small cubes. Mix together with the rocket salad in a large bowl. Crumble feta cheese on top and mix again.
Roast the pine nuts on a dry pan for a few minutes and mix into the salad together with the vinegar and salt.

Sprinkle a bit of fresh basil on top.

The Verdict
IMHO the best summer salad out there :-D I'd bought a watermelon that unfortunately turned out to taste very watery, so it wasn't that enticing to eat just as-is, but mixed together with rocket salad and feta cheese, it turned into the perfect side dish for a hot summer evening! Definitely something I'll be making again!
