Salad with Watermelon, Basil and Feta Alternative

On some days summer finally graces us with its present. I hope there will be some more warm and sunny days, so that I can recharge my soul batteries before the next winter comes.

So if it is hot outside, this delicious, cool salad is just right. It is very light and cools you down from the inside.

If you cannot imagine, that watermelon would taste great with a tangy dressing, you should definitely try this salad! To make this salad special, I added some tofu feta. I have used the recipe for it with my gyros dish already and since then I always make a jar in stock. I serve the salad with oven fresh baguette. Either I bake it myself or I heat up a stone oven baguette from the supermarket. Enjoy your fresh watermelon salad!

    Liebe Rina,

    bin grad zufällig über deinen schönen Blog gestolpert und habe dank deiner tollen Rezepte jetzt meinen Essensplan für die Woche komplett 😉
    Diesen Salat merke ich mir unbedingt für den Sommer- ich wollte schon so lange Tofu-Feta ausprobieren. Mein erster Versuch war leider nicht so dolle.

    Mach weiter so!
    Liebe Grüße,

      Liebe Geli,
      freut mich, dass dir meine Rezepte gefallen. Wenn du nochmal Tofu-Feta versuchst, empfehle ich dir den Tofu aus dem Asiamarkt zu nehmen. Zwischen dem und dem aus dem Supermarkt liegen Welten!
      Liebe Grüße
