OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Foodbycamilla turned  last 1 year this weekend!!  During this year I have posted 54 recipe. I must say that I am pretty happy  with every single on of them.The recipe I want to share to today, is greek salad with a twist.I was fortunate enough to go to  the beautiful island of Mykonos in Greek last summer, and ate heaps of greek salads. I also ate so really delicious watermelon salads with feta and mint leaves.You might think that adding watermelon to greek salad wouldn’t work, but I would definitely recommend giving it a go. Watermelon is with no doubt, the fruit of summer. This salad includes watermelon, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives and creamy feta cheese and mint leaves.This greek salad with watermelon is perfect for summer.This salad is so delicious and help you stay hydrated on warm summer days. Serve this salad with bread and condiments such as tzaksiki or hummus.

  1. I HATE watermelon–there, I said it! Any advice on how to convert someone to love watermelon? 😉 Anyhow, this looks great! I’d sub the feta for tofu since I’m lactose intolerant, but otherwise I LOVE Greek salads!
