Watermelon Salad Middle Eastern Style
We had a yummy lunch at Israeli owned Hummus Place in the East Village. On the lunch menu was this Middle Eastern dish, Watermelon with Feta Salad. We opted to share the Hummus and make our own later for dinner. After walking a total of 10 miles, a ferry ride to Statan Island and back, we made our rounds to our favorite markets. Try this . Takes 5 min to prepare. So perfect for this time of year!
1/4 watermelon cut in cubes, nice and chilled
top with fresh feta cheese, cut in small cubes
sprinkle with finely chopped fresh mint leaves
sprinkle with Israeli Za'atar (a spice blend of sumac, sesame seed and Za'atar- a mountain herb which has a fragrance of savory oregano and thyme. This spice blend can be found in Middle Eastern markets.
