My favorite summer salad

So the idea behind this salad is… all my favorite things thrown together? Actually the key thing is the combination of watermelon and feta, salty and sweet. They go so well together, also just alone as a snack!

This salad is easy, simple and summery. After eating it you feel full, not stuffed, satisfied and happy. At least I do. I had it for lunch today, decided to eat it outside and it tasted extra summery. It’s not that warm though but that doesn’t mean I can’t wrap myself in cardigans and enjoy my balcony space. (Who wants to see transformation post about that?) But now let me show you the ingredients!

Okei tämän salaatin idea… kaikki mun suosikkiainekset samalla lautasella? Ehkä pääpointti on vesimelonin ja fetan yhdistelmässä. Suolaista ja makeaa. Syön välillä naposteluna vain kulhollisen tuota sekoitusta, maistuu niin hyvältä yhdessä.

Tämä oli samalla mun myöhäinen lounas tänään, jonka päädyin lopulta nauttimaan ulkona. Kylmyydestä huolimatta tuli ekstrakesäinen olo. Olen joka kesä tehnyt tätä tosi usein. Salaatista jää täysi olo muttei ollenkaan ähkyä, on sellainen tyytyväisen energinen olo. Ja parasta, tämä on niin helppo ja simppeli.

You need:
– salad, cucumber, tomatoes (the basic base)
– watermelon
– feta cheese (the real deal, light versions don’t taste the same)
– pasta
– chicken (optional)
– basil (to top with)

For vinaigrette:
– olive oil
– honey
– lime
– black pepper & salt

Tarvitset:
– salaatti, tomaatti, kurkku
– vesimeloni
– feta (mieluiten ei kevyt-versioita, maistuu niin eriltä!)
– pasta
– kana (vapaaehtoista)
– basilika

Vinaigrette-kastike:
– oliiviöljyä
– juoksevaa hunajaa
– mustapippuria ja suolaa
– limen mehua

    That salad looks amazing!
    I would love to see your balcony makeover but first please show us your gaming setup! And if you could explain the features in a detailed way that would be awesome.
    I’m so curious about it because I also want to make one myself.
    Thank you for your amazing work!
