Watermelon feta salad or soup

May 16th, 2013

Chilled watermelon soup

As you can see, Evan is particularly pleased with this simple watermelon dish. The baby version of watermelon salad turns into a creamy soup, which Evan found a bit strange at first. He tried to eat the soup off the spoon, and realized that was not the most convenient method of consumption. "Slurp, slurp", I said, as I fed him, making the noisiest slurping sounds that would be perfectly polite at a Japanese ramen house. "Hoo!", he giggled. The more he eats this soup, the more practice he gets at conveying liquids to his mouth with a spoon, rather than a bottle. He seems to find the result worthy of the effort.

The grownup version of this dish is a warm weather favorite. With its juicy sweetness, watermelon begs for the salty counterpoint of feta cheese. The salad is incomplete without fresh mint leaves and some grassy, peppery extra virgin olive oil. I like to top the salad with some Aleppo chili pepper flakes. The salad would pair nicely with a good chilled beer, I think, and is best consumed outside in the hot summer sun.

This is the third post in a series on making your own baby food. See the first and second posts here:on making baby food, what am I, chopped liver?.

Leave out the chili flakes to make the baby-friendly version of this recipe (see below). You can always add the chili flakes later.

1 small or 1/2 large watermelon
1 8 oz/226 g package feta cheese, cubed
1 bunch fresh mint
black pepper
olive oil
Aleppo or other chili pepper flakes

  1. Cut the watermelon into large bite-sized cubed and place the fruit in a large bowl.
  2. Add the feta cubes to the bowl. The ratio of cheese to watermelon should be a little less than one to one.
  3. Rip 2-3 handfuls of mint into the bowl.
  4. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper, and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Sprinkle the chili flakes over the top.

Serves 4-6.

  1. Follow the directions for preparing watermelon salad as shown above, skipping the last step.
  2. Remove a few chunks each of watermelon and feta cheese from the bowl, and place them in a coffee grinder.
  3. Add another mint leaf or two, if you like, and another drizzle of olive oil.
  4. Pulverize the salad in the coffee grinder. Correct seasoning with freshly ground black pepper and olive oil.
  5. Optionally, sprinkle in a dash of finely ground chili pepper such as cayenne or hot paprika.
  6. Store in a 4 oz/125 ml canning jar.

    I believe everything published made a ton of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your information is not good,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s
    attention? I mean an open cupboard » Blog Archive » Watermelon feta salad or
    soup is kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links.

    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people
    interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year
    and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the
    guide in it or something. I feel that you simply can do with some
    percent to force the message house a little bit, however
    instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

    acto, poseen grandes protocolos de seguridad, donde la privacidad del cliente es una de sus máximas, por lo que no tenemos
    que preocuparnos por que nuestros datos personales puedan acabar en manos equivocadas.

    What you posted was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you
    how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean an open cupboard » Blog Archive » Watermelon feta salad or soup is a
    little vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write
    news headlines to get viewers interested.

    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab
    people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
