Cucumber Honeydew Feta Salad

Cucumber honeydew feta salad.  A cool crisp salad that you will love to eat on these steamy Summer days.

DSC_0216Hello there!

Sorry I was MIA for a whole week on ya.  I was sniffling, sneezing and coughing for a few days.  I had a Summer cold – no fun.  I think I went through 2 boxes of tissues.

Now I’m back and I want to welcome you to my latest salad fetish.  Cool crisp cucumber, sweet honeydew melon with salty feta all dressed up with a basil and mint infused simple syrup.  Just hearing about the ingredients makes me feel cooled off already.

This is such a refreshing salad on a steamy day like today.

We’re into the 90′s with high humidity in my neck of the woods and this salad is a welcome dish to help beat the heat.

There is just enough of a hint of the herb flavors coming through that it pairs perfectly with the cucumber honeydew feta combination.   I love it.

If you’re thinking, eh I don’t need the syrup….don’t do it.  The syrup is too good to pass up and so easy to make.

You can use it on so many other things too.  Try it in ice cream.  Drizzle it on a lemon cake or a chocolate cake.  Drizzle it in a bowl of blueberries or strawberries.  Oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless.

    Hi, Norma. Glad you are feeling better – a summer cold stinks possibly more than a winter one!
    Melon and feta is a really common combo in Greece, and I can only imagine how beautiful that syrup makes it. I like that you could use the syrup in other ways, too. This is a good one! :-)
