The Best Watermelon and Feta Salad
The best watermelon and feta salad I've ever tried is served at the Sopwell House in St. Albans, just outside of London. The chef, Gopi Chandran, has shared his recipe with us.
Salad, Side Dish
watermelon and feta salad
skin removed and diced 1 inch thick
diced or crumbled
Red Chilli pepper
remove rind and julienne. Juice the flesh.
To make the dressing, slowly and carefully heat olive oil, adding the garlic, chilli, thyme and rosemary, and lemon rind.
Gently heat for 3 minutes, add lemon juice, salt and pepper. It's important to do this slowly to avoid burning any of the added elements.
Set aside to cool.
To serve, spread the diced watermelon in the desired dish, sprinkle the feta on top, spoon over olives and distribute the dressing evenly.
Finish with a fine chiffonade of basil and mint - this will bring out the flavor.
