Meatless Monday recipe of the week: Watermelon Feta Salad
Headed to a cookout tonight? Bring along this salad and you’ll benefit from not only wowing other guests but also from the cheap price of the seasonal ingredients. (Got to enjoy watermelon season why we can.)
Watermelon Feta Salad
6-7 cups chopped romaine lettuce
3 cups seeded, cubed watermelon
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup crumbled feta
1/4 cup pureed watermelon
2 tablespoons finely sliced fresh basil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Place salad greens in a large, bright-colored salad bowl. Arrange watermelon cubes, red onions and feta in three piles over the greens; keep chilled until ready to serve.
For dressing, mix pureed watermelon, basil, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss salad with dressing.
