Fresh summer salad with delicious watermelon and feta for warm summer days…
Maybe you feel the same way, that you don’t want to eat heavy and hot dishes on warm summer days? Then today we have just the right summer recipe for you – a refreshing salad with watermelon and snake cucumber. In the height of summer, this summer salad simply does you good and fits both for dinner and for lunch. It fits both as a main dish, and as a side salad.
Especially because of the mint leaves, parsley and lemon juice, this summer salad tastes extremely fresh. The salty feta sheep cheese gives a perfect contrast to the sweet watermelon. We prefer to use vegetable onions, however, this healthy salad also tastes great with red onions. If you don’t like onions, you can of course do without them completely. We like to put a few mint leaves or whole cucumber slices on the salad for decoration.
Fitness salad with feta basic recipe
This light watermelon salad is not only a summer salad for us, but also a perfect fitness salad. The salad tastes fresh and contains carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and quite a lot of liquid. Especially in summer and after strenuous fitness sessions, the body is happy about this extra energy.
We are convinced especially the fresh feeling by the ingredients and the lightness mixed by the sweet and salty. Somehow we don’t feel guilty when we make this salad, but we are careful not to let it stand for long. Melon is known for the fact that you can quickly get gastrointestinal problems due to the bacteria on the peel.
Our tips therefore always buy whole melons in the store and best to clean the knife for cutting again and again in between. Afterwards, always store the melon pieces and the prepared salad in a cool place, preferably in an airtight tin, and of course eat them quickly.
Ciabatta bread as a side dish to the fitness salad
If you want a little more carbohydrates with our fitness salad, we can recommend our delicious homemade ciabatta bread. It also tastes super fresh and light to the summer salad as a side dish. Also visually, two slices of ciabatta next to the salad just look delicious. If you want it a little healthier, enjoy the summer salad with our healthy seed bread, which is also very filling.
