Watermelon & Feta Salad

Hi there!
It has been a while since my last post, but my wedding is right aroung the corner and I’ve been super busy with everything. I hope you can understand. I am leaving next week for Spain!
Summer is here, I can’t believe it how time flies. I love this season, and all my favorites fruit and vegetables that come with it. I have four blueberry bushes at my house and I will be picking berries very soon. (If the birds don’t get to them first…) I have been sourcing them in the mean time from a local farm.
Something that I really like to eat in the summer is watermelon. (I’m growing those too!) So refreshing and so healthy. I love it. For today I made an easy salad of watermelon, feta and basil. My basil and mint are growing like crazy. I am pretty much eating tomato with basil everyday.
Anyways, back to the subject… regarding the watermelon… I made this easy and quick salad. It will take you less than 2 minutes to make it and trust me, it might sound a little weird, but it’s delicious.
Ingredients:
3 cups diced watermelon
1/2 cup diced feta cheese
3 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons of chopped fresh basil
pinch of salt
Mix the watermelon, feta and basil. Pour the balsamic vinegar on top and add a pinch of salt. That’s it! Always fresh, delicious, and nutritious!
Try to use a watermelon that is very cold. It will taste better and be more refreshing, especially on of of those hot and beautiful summer days. Happy summer!

I am happy to share this recipe with Fiesta Friday #125!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.

  1. Hi! I saw this @ Fiesta Friday.
    It’s never a bad idea to have multiple watermelon recipes on hand! I am a big fan of balsamic so this should be an amazing treat! Good luck with the wedding!
