One of my most popular blog posts on Kitoula’s Greek Food Journal is my quick and easy recipe for Watermelon and Feta Salad.
It’s a refreshing summer time classic and has just six simple ingredients:
- watermelon – cut in bite size pieces
- feta cheese – crumbled
- red onion – sliced thin
- mint leaves – small individual leaves or chiffonade
- lemon juice
- and honey.
Toss lightly in a bowl and serve.
For this watermelon and feta salad revisited blog post, I made a video!
And a big shout out to Lumen5 for the wonderful video editing application.
Who doesn’t like a fruit salad? The weather has been really hot with a heat advisory on almost half of the country. I don’t really feel like cooking or eating much on days as hot as this, but a nice cold fruit salad is just the thing I enjoy.
I started with kiwis. They are a little labor intensive, but I try to get into the “zen” of peeling these furry little fruits.
I love the tartness and the color of kiwis.
Next come the strawberries, I trim off the green leafy tops…
…and then I quarter them.
Green grapes are easy, just pluck them off their stems.
Blueberries require nothing but a quick rinse.
I serve my fruit salad with classic yogurt mixed with honey.
My fruit salad is also photo set on Flickr. What are your favorite fruits to mix in a salad?
