Watermelon and Fetta Salad

It's been so hot that the thought of turning on the oven, or going outside to turn on the BBQ is just horrendous. I find when it's hot that my appetite disappears and all I want is something light to eat. Therefore tonight's dinner had to be something light, cooling, easy, with minimal cooking required.

Ingredients (Serves 2)
1/4 fresh, juicy watermelon
1/3 jar (100-150g) of Binnorie Marinated Fetta
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
2 tbs fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup walnuts
1. Toast the walnuts in a dry frypan for 2-5 mins, tossing continually. Allow to cool.
2. Cube the watermelon. Place in salad bowl.
3. Crumble fetta over the top of the watermelon.
4. Ball up the basil leaves and shred with a sharp knife, repeat with the mint leaves, reserving a few for presentation. Sprinkle herbs over the fetta and melon.
5. Roughly chop the cooled walnuts and sprinkle over the salad.
Serve immediately.
