Recipe: Watermelon & Feta Salad with Grilled Tuna

Lately I've just been cooking for myself a lot - and when I do - frankly there's not much cooking! I'm too tired when I get home from work and I just want to eat and relax. But I have two things that I've literally been making AT LEAST once a week!

1. Caprese Salad - so easy and so delicious - most of the time - I skip the basil and just have fresh mozz and fresh tomatoes. (I'm going to miss tomato season.) 

2. This watermelon & feta salad - sometimes I just eat that! But a lot of times - I'll grill a piece of seafood to go with it - most often tuna. This dinner is light and healthy and goes from fridge to plate in 10 minutes! 

I buy frozen tuna in individually wrapped packages and just take one out in the morning - and it's thawed by the time I get home. The only seasoning I use is a touch of coarse sea salt.

I sear that in a little olive oil - 2-3 minutes on each side and that's it! I like tuna medium rare - but cook it to your desired doneness.

Plating is super simple - you just take about a cup (or more) of diced watermelon on your plate - top it with your seared tuna - sprinkle on crumbled feta and then top it all with a little coarse sea salt and your favorite Greek salad dressing.

I promise - once you make this recipe - you'll add it to your regular rotation! The watermelon is so light and sweet - it' pairs great with the salty feta and sea salt. The Greek dressing is my touch - I think it adds a little flavor that goes well with everything.

Watermelon & Feta Salad with Grilled Tuna

Watermelon & Feta Salad is my latest obsession! Make it simpler with a splash of Greek dressing and entree it up by adding a piece of grilled seafood. Healthy & delicious!
