Watermelon with Feta and Yoghurt Dressing

Watermelon would seem an unlikely candidate for a salad but with a tangy feta and yoghurt dressing and garnished with mint it worked surprisingly well, and was very decorative.

It's the kind of salad that could easily be put together for a barbecue although I wouldn't leave it out in the sun. It tastes better chilled.

Or, if like most of us, you piled on the weight during the festive season and have decided to lose a few kilos, a slice or two of this is a healthy inbetween meals snack. ( I made it after breakfast, and it was gone by lunchtime)


Arrange slices of watermelon on a platter. Drizzle generously with the following dressing. Then chill in the fridge for at least half an hour. Garnish with mint leaves before serving.


Whizz in food processor until smooth:

100 grams of feta
1/3 cup of yoghurt
3 tablspoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
salt to taste

( Thin if necessary with a little more yoghurt/oil)
