Try This: Watermelon & Feta Salad with Cucumber, Mint & Tofu

 Watermelon & Feta Salad with Cucumber, Mint & Tofu



1/4 watermelon, diced into bite-sized chunks

1/2 cucumber 2 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

Tofu: optional

 1 lime 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 

 4-5 fresh mint leaves, chiffonade salt and pepper


Slice the half cucumber down the middle and then cut each half so that you have a pile of half-moons about a half-inch wide. Toss the cucumber and the diced melon in a large salad bowl.  Chop Tofu into squares and season to your liking.* Sprinkle the cheese on top, and season with salt and black pepper. Drizzle the olive oil and the juice of the lime over the top. Sprinkle the chiffonade of mint leaves on top of the salad as a garnish.

The colors of the salad look best before tossing, so if you’re making this for company,Try serving like this and tossing at the table. Alternatively, you can toss the watermelon and cucumber with the oil, lime juice, salt and pepper and then add the cheese and mint at the end.

*If you plan to use Tofu it’s better to take it out of package and let the liquid drain (sit something heavy on top of it to drain faster). This will make the Tofu eaiser to season!
