Summer is here and a refreshing watermelon avocado salad is the order of the day. Salads are good for you, they provide fibre and all the essential vitamins. Watermelon is a very wholesome fruit, it is full of water and is rich in vitamin A & C. I can chow down big pieces of watermelon in a jiffy, love the texture, love the taste, love watermelon!
This watermelon avocado salad is dressed with a watermelon vinaigrette packed with flavours, tangy and peppy. It lifts the watermelon avocado to a whole new level, rather than adding plain old vinaigrette (emulsified dressing made of oil, vinegar/lemon and seasonings). The watermelon vinaigrette makes it even more watermelony 🙂 ... “Watermelon Avocado Salad | Salad Recipes”

Mediterranean cuisine is a very vast cuisine. It covers various regions with a wide variety of dishes. Over the last few days I have posted recipes which are simple dips from the Mediterranean cuisine. These dips can be easily converted into a big party platter, forms a great starter with simple nibbles to munch on. The dips included Hummus, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Tzatziki. This platter is great for parties or potlucks. Very easy to prepare, easy to put it all together and is very portable. Nibbles and snacks can include very simple things like sliced avocado, pita chips and even tortilla chips (ok may be not Mediterranean but tastes awesome!). Other common things from the Mediterranean region like olives, some Greek Feta cheese (available in most supermarkets) all make up for great snacks on this platter. Include other things if you want to like slices of toasted pita bread, roasted aubergines etc. Restaurant quality dishes at home ready in few minutes. Easy on the stomach and on your pockets!

Tzatziki, (pronounced ta:t:si:ki) is a yogurt based dip from Greek cuisine. It is very similar to cucumber raitha differing only in the addition of certain ingredients like, olive oil and vinegar. Aromatic herbs like mint, dill (sabsige) are added to make the dip even more delicious. Mint leaves can be cut into chiffonades (mint leaves stacked up, rolled and then cut into thin long strips) or the dill leaves can be finely chopped and added to the dip. This emerald light green coloured grated cucumber dip is very refreshing and cooling. Make this for your Mediterranean platter, recipe up next on FOI. From top left, roasted red pepper hummus, plain hummus and tzatziki. As promised, I am posting the part of the photo of the mega Mediterranean platter.
