Salty tangy feta cheese contrasts well with fresh sweet watermelon and peaches. Served on a bed of spicy salad leaves.

Serves: 4 

  • 400g watermelon flesh
  • 2 nectarines or peaches
  • 200g mixed baby salad leaves, including rocket and curly endive
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pepitas or sunflower seeds

Preparation:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Cut the watermelon into bite-sized cubes, removing all the seeds as you come across them. Halve the nectarines and remove the stones, then slice the flesh. Tear the salad leaves into bite-sized pieces, if necessary. Combine the fruit and leaves in a large salad bowl.
  2. Crumble the feta cheese over the salad. Add the oil and lemon juice and toss gently until well mixed. Season with plenty of black pepper – you should not need salt because feta cheese is salty. Sprinkle with the seeds and serve.
