Broccoli, Watermelon and Feta Salad

I love broccoli, I love watermelon, I love Feta Cheese.
I love salads too - and there are so many different types you can ‘throw’ together, not just lettuce and tomatoes. Here is a great recipe to share with you all … but again a word of warning, depending on your likes, any allergies or other health related issues the recipe may not be suitable for all. For instance if you are diabetic and not too sure of your blood sugar tolerances it may be wise to use your meter and check your blood sugar readings.
But if this is for you then Happy Preparation, plus a little bit of cooking, but most of all Happy Eating …….please read on.
Serves: 2
Preparation and cooking time: 10 mins
200g Broccoli (Tenderstem® is lovely)
15g pumpkin seeds
Quarter of a medium sized watermelon
Quarter of a medium cucumber
200g feta cheese
Half bunch of mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Steam the Broccoli for a few minutes until it is just tender. Remove and leave to cool.
1. Lightly toast the pumpkin seeds in a hot frying pan until they start to turn crunchy and golden. Remove from the pan and leave to cool.
2. Cut the watermelon and the cucumber into chunks and place in a bowl or on a large serving plate. Cut the Broccoli into bite-size pieces and add to the bowl/plate. Crumble over the feta cheese and sprinkle over the toasted pumpkin seeds and chopped mint.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the top of the salad and serve.
It tastes divine … a friend of mine might say.

All the best Jan
