Mediterranean Watermelon Salad | How to Make Mediterranean Watermelon

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad Recipe – Watermelon is my favourite fruit and all my life I have been eating it in the most monotonous manner i.e. by cutting, de-seeding and seasoning it with some rock salt. But then I thought of breaking that monotony and searched the internet for some recipes.

I stopped at the Mediterranean Watermelon Salad. Then stared at the word “Mediterranean” and presumed that it will be a complicated recipe. But when I read it, I found it was a simple recipe. And I was glad that I’ll be trying Mediterranean cuisine (believe me each time I write this word Mediterranean, I check if I have spelled it right or not). So trying this cuisine is a proud moment for me. Yeah am like that only… I feel proud easily and I get happy easily.

I really liked the combination of watermelon and mint. The sharpness of basil was balancing the flavours. Crunchy watermelon and cucumber and soft paneer!! This salad offers much more than I had expected.

I found this recipe here. Lots of customisation is possible with this recipe. You can include the vegetables of your choice such a bell peppers, olives, onion, tomatoes and so on. You can even play with the seasoning by adding cumin powder, black pepper, oregano, nuts, flax seeds etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
