Watermelon and Feta Salad Revisited

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.

Fruit Salad in July

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.
