Watermelon Feta Triangles

What sounds fresh and tasty more than watermelon feta triangles, well maybe there are other things but right now this fresh and bright snack is taking the spotlight. I like to make these on weekends and just set them on the coffee table so we can snack on them while watching tv. Its a very refreshing and light snack to eat especially in the summer. The feta provides a salty contrast to the sweet watermelon which you will love.

Watermelon Feta Triangle recipe

Ingredients 

1 quarter medium sized watermelon

1/2 cup Good quality Feta cheese

5 leaves fresh basil

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Cut watermelon into triangles about an inch or less thick.
  2. Crumble feta cheese, tear basil leaves into small pieces and place over watermelon slices
  3. Mix extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar and drizzle over watermelon slices.
  4. Serve on platter and enjoy!

The balsamic dressing is totally optional and can be omitted. I initially wanted to drizzle the triangles with a balsamic glaze which would have been perfect but I was too hungry to make it so if you are not as lazy as I was you can use a glaze instead. balsamic glazes can be bought in store too, I just like to make everything myself because I get to control the ingredients.

Benefits of eating Watermelon

There are some benefits to eating this dish especially from the watermelon. Did you know that watermelon contains about 92% water which is already a plus as we know water is good for us. In addition to water content watermelons are a great source of Lycopene, vitamin A, vitamin C and Vitamin B6. They also contain good levels of potassium, copper and lots more. The best part of it all is that it is a low calorie and fat free snack, need I say more.
