watermelon and feta

Something refreshing for dare I say it these slightly warmer days.  This is in essence the Greeks equivalent to British strawberries and cream.  A true staple in Greece where restaurant owners may even bring you a plate as a post-meal refresher - on the house.  It also goes down well in the afternoon when everyone wakes from their siesta about to head down to the beach.  Back in the UK I love it any place, any time.
The combination of feta and watermelon may sound strange to those who haven't tried it but trust me it works very well.  It's a sweet and salty explosion of flavours, you will never be able to eat watermelon without feta ever again.  A few sprigs of mint would also go down well with this.

You will need:
  • watermelon
  • good quality feta (preferably cows milk feta not goats milk)
1) Slice some cold watermelon and serve with slices of good quality feta.

There is not much to say about this drink other than it is every so simple, ever so refreshing and ever so good for you.  One small sip and you'll find yourself drifting off to another land, a land of suntan oil, mosquitos and peace, yes somewhere exotic, somewhere we call a holiday!
Serves 2-4
You'll need:
  • 1 punnet of raspberries
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk
  • crushed ice

1) Put raspberries, honey and coconut milk in a blender and blend till smooth.  Serve over crushed ice.
