A summer addiction: Watermelon and Bulgarian salad

I believe that salads promoting fruits are always a hit especially for summers days. Watermelon and Bulgarian cheese is a perfect refreshing salad, celebrating summer at its best. If you wish to impress your guests, this is one incredible salad that deserves a big applause.

Everything about this salad is amazing, from the watermelon to the Bulgarian cheese, rocket leaves, fresh mint leaves and roasted almonds. And I decided to top it off with a sweet balsamic and olive oil dressing.  It was the perfect finishing touch to this salad.

There is no precise amount for the ingredients, you will need pieces of watermelon cut in square shapes and slices of Bulgarian cheese, same size, to insert between. You decide how many piece you need, depending on the amount of guests you have. Top each watermelon and cheese square with rocket leaves and few fresh mint leaves. A handful roast almonds to give it some crunchiness. Drizzle a little of olive oil and sweet balsamic glaze.

Watermelon slush – Say goodbye cheers to Lebanon summer days


watermelon slushOur vacation has come to an end, it’s time to pack  and go back to Doha!

I became so damn professional in packing, i can fit a whole house in my bag! It became as easy as drinking watermelon 😉

A perfect watermelon slush to beat the heat and say goodbye cheers to beautiful summer that brought  me a lot.

  • 3 cups diced seedless watermelon (or almost 500g)
  • 1 cup ice (7-8 ice cubes)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • one lime juice optional

Place watermelon, ice, sugar and lime (optional) in a blender and blend until smooth. This quantity serves 4 cups.

You can replace the lime with lemon, it also works and gives the tanginess you need in your drink, or keep it simple and sweet as is without any addition.

To booze it up, add vodka and enjoy!

This way you eliminate using ice cubes, you only blend the watermelon, sugar and lime (optional) until smooth! I like this method, the flavor turns out stronger!
