I’m using one of our favorite summer fruits and combining it with a Greek favorite (feta cheese) to create a very unique but amazingly delicious salad. Do you trust me? Make this recipe with the exact ingredients I’ve added at least once! Each ingredient adds its own unique flavor and richness to the dish and the watermelon takes it to a whole other level….
- Arrange the pieces of watermelon and feta cheese nicely on a serving platter.
- Add the leaves of rocket, coriander, parsley and mint.
- Toast some black sesame seeds in a pan and sprinkle over the top.
- Sprinkle with a little rosewater… drizzle with some pomegranate or grape molasses syrup, some olive oil and end with some flower sea salt.
