Spiced feta with watermelon salsa
- Preparation and cooking time
- No cook
- Serves 2
Treat this salty Greek cheese a little differently by coating a chunk with cumin and coriander, then serving with a light and fruity salsa
For the salsa
- STEP 1
Using a pestle and mortar, crush the cumin and coriander seeds with a coarse grinding of pepper. Sit the feta on a plate, sprinkle over the spice mix – turning the feta so all sides are coated – and finish with a little olive oil. Set aside.
- STEP 2
Mix the salsa ingredients together and season. Mix together the salad leaves, parsley and mint.
- STEP 3
Brush the pittas with a little more oil and pop under a grill to heat through. Put a block of feta each on 2 plates, and serve with a spoonful of salsa, salad and pitta.
USE UP LEFTOVER HERBS
Whizz the leftover mint and parsley together with 2 handfuls of pine nuts, a squeeze of lemon juice and enough extra virgin olive oil to make a pesto consistency. Stir through spaghetti, spread over bruschetta, or serve with grilled salmon steaks.
