Labor Day is just around the corner which means cookouts abound. This watermelon salad is the perfect last minute recipe for cookouts. I have been craving watermelon lately, in fact I have been using it with all sorts of salads and appetizers. I’ve found that it works beautifully with salt and Saba.

I use watermelon as I would tomatoes, and surprisingly, it’s a perfect substitute. Give it a whirl.┬áThis is the perfect summer salad to serve with grilled meat or to take along to a cookout.

Watermelon Salad with Feta with Saba
Serves 6
You will need:

– 4 cups cold cubed watermelon
– 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves cut in chiffonade
– 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
– 4 tablespoons Saba
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil
– 1/2 teaspoon salt

To prepare:

Arrange the cubed cold watermelon in a shallow platter. Sprinkle with basil, feta, saba, salt and olive oil. Serve immediately.

I prepare this salad right before we sit down to eat so it stays cold, crisp, and fresh. If you’re taking it as a side dish, be sure to keep it chilled until ready to serve.

Enjoy xx
