Spiced Feta with Watermelon Salsa – Recipe

Prep Time: 12 minutes

Yield: Serves 2

This Spiced Feta with Watermelon Salsa recipe is a firm favourite of ours. Erik and myself love the fresh flavours of Feta Cheese, Watermelon and very finely sliced Red Onion - it not only brings back memories of Greek Holidays but also is a lovely healthy light lunch. We sometimes add the juicy Greek Kalamata Olives, which make it an even better light meal.

  • 1/4 tsp Cumin Seed
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander Seed
  • 200 g block Feta Cheese (you can use light if preferred) - halved
  • A little good-quality fruity Olive Oil
  • 2 handfuls Mixed Salad Leaves
  • Small handful FlatLeaf Parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 Mint Sprigs, leaves picked
  • 2 large Pitta Breads, quartered
  • Black Pepper
  • For the Salsa:
  • 175 g pack Watermelon Chunks (or equivalent whole chunk) chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 1 Red Chilli, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped


  1. Using a pestle & mortar, crush the cumin and coriander seeds with a coarse grinding of black pepper. Sit the feta cheese on a plate, sprinkle over the spice mix, pressing the feta into the spices - turning the feta so all sides are coated - and finish with a little drizzle of olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Mix the salsa ingredients together and season. Mix together the salad leaves, parsley and mint.
  3. Brush the pittas with a little more oil and pop under a grill to heat through.
  4. Put a block on feta on 2 plates and serve with a spoonful of salsa, salad and pitta.
