Eat Watermelon Salad with Feta

Not only is this easy to make summer salad very refreshing, but it contains 80% more light than other food, because of the watermelon. If it was not for the feta, it  would contain even more light. If you eat it you help release trapped light back to the cosmos – at least this is what a now extinct gnostic religion of the Late Antiquity, the followers of Mani,believed! It sounds even more bizarre than the Jedi Church, but the cult existed indeed. The last standing temple of the religion is in the southeast coast of China, transformed to a buddhist shrine now, and surrounded by watermelon plants I suppose.

Serves 2-4

  • 400g chilled watermelon, rind removed, desseeded  and cubed
  • 150g cucumber, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 100g feta, cubed
  • 1 Tbsp mint, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • freshly ground black pepper

Place the watermelon, cucumber, feta cheese and mint in a large bowl.

Combine the olive oil with the balsamic vinegar, pour over the watermelon mixture and toss gently to coat.

Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.


  1. This sounds looks wonderful. I never would have thought of combining watermelon, with mint, cucumbers, and feta. And, I enjoyed the background information about the gnostic beliefs regarding watermelon and light.

  2. silly me! why did I not think of this earlier. Right now we starting to get ‘swamped’ with w/melons again, mint is available and Feta! It costs the earth here and only 1 Hypermarket stocks it, I will get on my next shopping trip next week – it certainly is worth it. Thanks for posting.
