El Masyaf Eats’ Summer Watermelon Salad


A twist on an Egyptian summertime favorite … watermelon! Enjoy this light and tasty salad, perfect for those days when you can’t handle a belly full of heavy food.


200 g watermelon
60 g Feta cheese
5 g basil leaves
20 g white onion, blanched
30 g avocado slices
5 g olive oil
5 g lime juice
10 g honey
2 g sesame seeds


Slice the fresh watermelon into cubes, let it drain in a colander to remove all excess water and chill in the fridge. Cut the Feta cheese into the same size cubes as the watermelon.

To make the dressing, mix the olive oil, lime juice, honey and white onions in a bowl.

In a salad bowl, gently mix the watermelon, Feta and dressing. Garnish with basil leaves, avocado slices and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
