This time I would like to share a super simple, but at the same time, very delicious recipe for a watermelon salad with crisp pumpkin seeds and feta cheese.
I typically make and serve this watermelon salad when I am having a barbecue party – I think it is because it is a very summer-like salad and therefore is perfect for an outdoor barbecue. However, of course it is a great salad all year round and it goes perfect with most meat.
I am always ending up making this salad when I have bought a too large watermelon for my afternoon fruit snack. Then I always save half the watermelon for the day after and then I make this melon salad.
As said, this salad is super easy to make. You simply just cut the fresh watermelon into smaller cubes and mix it with some lightly dry-fried pumpkin seeds and feta cheese. Decorate the salad in a flat salad dish and if you like, add some chopped parsley on the top – it is that simple to make this delicious salad.
