Watermelon Feta Salad with Lemon Basil Dressing

19 Apr

Summer recipes are popping up everywhere and I couldn’t wait to try this watermelon and feta salad. With mouth-watering watermelon, bold feta and tangy lemon basil dressing it’s the perfect side dish for a summer BBQ. I used to think fruit in salad was super weird but as my taste buds have matured I can’t  think of anything more refreshing or tasty. It’s such a simple salad and you will really impress your friends when you say you made the dressing! So no more preservative packed, bottled dressings, with only three ingredients there are no excuses why you can’t whip up your own majestic homemade dressing. Cheers to that!!!

Whisk 1 part fresh lemon juice with 3 parts olive oil, chopped basil (you can substitute mint for the basil but I much prefer basil) and salt and pepper. Toss with baby arugula, micro greens or any type of lettuce you prefer, watermelon cubes and feta cubes.
