Iets anders proberen dan courgette? Ga voor aubergine. Ook deze mediterraanse groente is heerlijk in combinatie met zongedroogde tomaatjes en feta.

Summer watermelon feta salad

Some combinations are gold. Like watermelon and feta: a match made in heaven. The sweetness of watermelon as a counterpart to slightly salty feta. Lemon and mint provice freshness. Crunchy pecans add a nice bite. A juicy, tasty and colorful party on your plate! With this salad you’ll taste summer.

Did you know... Feta has been eaten in Greece for thousands of years? Greeks still love it and they eat pounds of feta every year. Greek feta is made from sheep and/or goat cheese. The white color and crumbly structure are characteristic of this cheese. That's why feta is perfect for crumbling over a salad.

Tip from FitForMe:

Feta is a dairy product. With this cheese you get calcium, amino acids and proteins. Feta is less fat than many other cheeses. Nevertheless, it is better not to eat too much of it and choose a light variant.
