Watermelon Greek Salad

The summer heat is catching up with all of us! It’s important to drink plenty of fluids to help us stay well hydrated. Lots of fruit and vegetables are also a great source of water. In fact, around a fifth of our daily fluid intake comes from the foods we eat. For example; cucumber, melon, strawberries, mushrooms, oranges, apples, all these fruits, and veggies contain at least 80% of water.


I find myself craving more and more of this refreshing foods daily; like watermelon, it is super refreshing, I love it. In this Watermelon Greek Salad, I combine hydrating fruits and veggies and elevated it with salty cheese and olives, and a sweet balsamic glaze.

Prep time: 15min - Serves: 4ppl

Ingredients:

1/4 of a medium watermelon, cubed

1 medium cucumber, cubed

3 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled

6 kalamata olives, sliced

5 basil leaves, chopped

2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

1 teaspoon Maldon salt or flaky salt


Directions:

  • In a bowl combine watermelon and cucumber.

  • When ready to eat, plate watermelon cucumber mix into a plate and top with the feta cheese, kalamata olives, basil, and salt.

  • Drizzle the balsamic glaze and serve immediately.

Tips:

-If you don’t like Kalamata olives, you can use green olives or capers. Or simply leave them out!

-The Balsamic glaze is optional. I add it sometimes and other times don’t, it gives it a nice sweet flavor.

-Adding the flaky salt helps the watermelon develop more flavor and releases more water making it extra hydrating!
