SUMMER TIME: Watermelon Salad with Toasted Walnuts

It's summer time and I was craving something light, fresh and exciting. I decided to make a fruity watermelon salad with balsamic glaced onions, toasted walnuts and feta cheese. I always thought it strange to mix a salad with fruits, but this time I wanted to give it a chance and it turned out amazingly delicious. Best tp 


  • mixed lettuce (e.g. Endive, Rocket, Arugula, Spinach)
  • 3 cups watermelon cubes
  • 1 cup yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
For the Dressing:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill and/or other dried herbs (basil, oregono, thyme)
  • salt


  • Wash the lettuce and shake the water off. Transfer to a bowl.Cut the tomatoes in half and add to the bowl. Mix.
  • Cut the watermelon into 1 inch cubes.
  • Cut the red onion into rings. Heat the butter in a pan, add the onion rings and sauté at low temperature. Add the balsamic vinegar and stir. When soft and translucent (after 5-10min), remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Heat the oven at 375 degree Fahrenheit. Spread the walnut halves evently on an oven pan and toast for about 5-10 minutes till slithly brown. Turn walnuts in between.
  • Mix all ingredients for the dressing, stir well so that the vinegar, lemon juice and oil are completely mixed and not separated. Season to taste with salt and herbs.
  • Now, serve the salad on a plate. First, the lettuce with tomatoes. Second, add the watermelon, onion rings and walnuts. Third, sprinkle with feta cheese crumbles. And in the end, dribble the dressing over it.
