Watermelon And Feta Salad With Mint Served With Caramelized Balsamic Dressing

Serves 4


Ingredients for salad

  • 2kg seedless watermelon, peeled
  • 2 radishes, sliced thinly
  • 100g crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsps. Caramelized balsamic dressing
  • 1 bunch fresh chopped Mint leaves, to garnish

Ingredients for dressing

  • 250ml balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. MAGGI Arome Liquid seasoning
  • 3-6 tablespoons, caster sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons brown sugar
  1. Place all ingredients of the dressing in a small saucepan and heat on low/medium heat, until the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat up to high until boiling and cook for 5-10 minutes until the mixture has thickened slightly(it should reduce by about half)
  2. Test it by placing a small amount on a cold spoon and see how the mixture thickens with cooking. It should start to become darker as it thickens and run on the spoon less easily.
  3. It will thicken further upon cooling.
  4. Meanwhile, Cut rind from the watermelon, and then slice the fruit into thin slices. Place slices in a colander to drain as your chop.
  5. Place watermelon and radish in a large salad bowl. Pour caramelized balsamic dressing and chopped mint over the watermelon and toss gently to coat.
  6. Pour the crumbled feta into the salad bowl and stir gently to integrate the cheese into the salad. Serve immediately.

Note: This salad is best made just prior to serving. Prepare one hour or less before your meal.
