Ingredients

  • 1 small ripe Galia or cantaloupe melon
  • 1 x 70g bag rocket
  • a handful of basil leaves, torn
For the marinated feta
  • 1 x 200g pack feta, cubed
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon (save the lemon juice for the vinaigrette)
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp dried mint or dried oregano
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
For the vinaigrette
  • juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange
  • 1 tsp orange blossom water (we used Nielsen-Massey)

Step by step

Get ahead
Marinate the feta the night before, cover and keep chilled.
  1. Start by marinating the feta. Put the feta cubes in a small bowl, add the lemon zest, spices and herbs, then pour over the oil. Toss gently to coat. Set aside for at least 1 hour for the flavours to infuse. Cover and transfer to the fridge if marinating for longer.
  2. Halve and deseed the melon, then cut it into large chunks, discarding the peel as you go. Arrange the rocket on a large serving plate with the melon and basil. Drain the feta through a sieve into a bowl (reserving the oil) and scatter the feta cubes over the salad.
  3. Whisk the remaining vinaigrette ingredients into the reserved feta oil. Drizzle all over the salad just before serving.
