Vegan Watermelon Feta Salad Recipe

Vegan watermelon feta salad – perfect for hot summer days

36 degrees and it gets even hotter!!! Yaaaay, summer has finally arrived in Germany! I’m admittedly more of an “it can’t be warm enough!” kind of person. When the sun comes out, I shift my life outside and try to get as much sun as possible to fill my vitamin D storage. “Sun worshipper” – I guess that sums it up very well. 🙂

Especially on hot summer days, I love cold, light dishes that are quick to prepare. Similar to my chickpea-avocado salad or my light lentil pasta salad, you provide your body with important nutrients that compensate for sweat loss on hot summer days. I’ll tell you more about this soon in a separate blog post on watermelon. And now let’s get to work on the salad!

Watermelon feta salad – the freshness kick

As you can see, you only need a few ingredients – that was very important to me personally for this recipe. Very simple, without a lot of clutter. Nevertheless, you can pimp the salad with a handful of roasted pine nuts, almond slices or walnuts! You can also use olive oil instead of linseed oil. Linseed oil in particular is perfect for cold dishes and provides important omega-3 fatty acids, of which we take in too few anyway! I also like to use the vegan feta from Bedda (Hirte)* – unsolicited advertising, because it’s yummy!

I love the salad especially on hot summer days because, on the one hand, it is not “too light” and fills me up, on the other hand, it is not too heavy and doesn’t knock me out. In addition, you provide your body with important nutrients and above all fluids. Perfect to stay hydrated on warm summer days. Especially water and water-containing foods are very important on hot summer days! Have you read my blog post about drinking the right amount of water?

Watermelon meets feta – the perfect combination

Watermelon is probably the summer fruit par excellence! Not only does it have a water content of 95% and therefore provides you with important fluids, but it also supplies a lot of nutrients – 10 facts you should know about watermelons. Just a little teaser: it contains a lot of citrullines, which is known to counteract erectile dysfunction and impotence. #justsayin 😉

With that in mind, it’s worth keeping in touch! 😉
