WOW! No matter what part of Australia you live in, this spring has already been a scorcher – and it looks like there are a lot more ‘hot’ days to come. Sometimes you may not feel like eating when it’s hot outside, but it’s important that you do simply because you run the risk of becoming deficient in vitamins and minerals. Not only that, you have to ‘feed’ your body to keep your metabolism burning energy – food deprivation can lead to a slowing down of your metabolism which increases your chance of gaining weight. ADD a great salad to your protein rich meal, and enjoy. Why not try this yummy watermelon & feta salad- with balsamic reduction?
- ½ a large Watermelon
- ½ cup Red Onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp Basil, chopped
- 1 tbsp Mint, chopped
- ¾ cup Feta Cheese
- 1-2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1-2 tbsp Balsamic reduction
- Get out a large bowl.
- Cut your watermelon in bite size pieces. Add it to the bowl.
- Add sliced onions, basil, mint, and feta cheese to your bowl.
- Drizzle the olive oil to coat salad and toss.
- You can either drizzle the balsamic over the whole salad and toss it before you serve, or you can dish out the salad first and then drizzle the balsamic reduction over each plate. Either way will be yummy!
How to make your ‘Balsamic Reduction’
Stir 1 cup balsamic vinegar and 1-3 tablespoons honey (or you may choose any of your favourite sweeteners such as coconut sugar, maple syrup) together in a small saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the vinegar mixture has reduced to 1/3 cup, about 10 minutes. Keep a close eye to prevent burning .Set the balsamic reduction aside to cool.
