This is another typical cucina povera delight. This dish is both tasty and refreshing, especially after spending a day in the vineyards checking on the ripening grapes.

  • 800 gr. Watermelon
  • 150 gr. Casale organic feta (or Casale organic primosale, if you prefer a more delicate flavor)
  • the flesh of one melon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of Casale extra virgin organic olive oil
  • the juice of one lemon
  • 1 julienned lemon peel
  • A few leaves of mint or summer savory

LEVEL: Easy PREP TIME: 15 min.

  1. Slice the watermelon thinly, removing the seeds as you go. Slice the melon thinly too. Arrange them on a platter.
  2. Sprinkle the feta on top of the slices.
  3. Prepare a dressing of olive oil, lemon, and a sprinkle of salt. Pour over the fruit and cheese.
  4. Add a few mint leaves, the lemon peel and if you like, some freshly ground pepper.
