WATERMELON SALAD WITH FETA, WALNUT & NIGELLA SEEDS
1 cup walnut halves
200g feta cheese
A few sprigs of Persian basil/Thai basil or mint
1 tsp nigella seeds
1. Soak walnuts in hot water for five minutes in a bowl. Rinse and cover with cold water and a pinch of salt. Let stand for a few minutes (it can soak for as long as half a day and will get even better with longer soaking). Rinse and drain.
2. Cut your watermelon into cubes or use a spoon to scoop out the red flesh and put in a bowl.
3. Cube or crumble the cheese over the watermelon. Add the walnut pieces and garnish with Persian basil or mint leaves.
4. Put your nigella seeds in a small pan and toast briefly on medium heat until fragrant. Sprinkle on the salad and enjoy!
