The Cool Dude



  • 2 cups Watermelon, deseeded and cubed
  • 1/3 cup Feta Cheese, cubed
  • A small bunch of fresh sweet Basil
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Dash of freshly grinded black Pepper


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the Olive oil, Lime juice, Honey, Salt and Pepper. I often add a little Mustard Sauce to personalise it to my taste. Though it’s very much optional.
  2. Combine the cubed watermelon, feta cheese along with the fresh basil in a large salad bowl. Sprinkle the salad with the prepared dressing. Toss gently and serve immediately.
  3. Can be served as a mid-day munchy or as an appetizer before a meals or along with meals serving grilled chicken or sandwiches.


Be sure to serve it as soon as it’s made as it doesn’t stay very well for long and also the watermelon doesn’t retain its crunchiness. I mostly add 1 heaped Tsp of Mustard Sauce to the dressing. Having a Bengali taste bud, tried using even Kasundi Mustard Sauce as a variation. Tastes simply wonderful!
