  • salt, pepper

For the toppings :

  • 250g of feta cheese
  • the leftover spring onion tops
  • a dozen mint leaves

  1. Add to a blender the watermelon flesh, the tomatoes, the cucumber, the piece of bread, the spring onions and lastly the olive oil and the vinegar.
  2. Mix everything till smooth, then salt and pepper to taste and mix again.
  3. Chop the spring onion tops and the mint. In a bowl, crumble the feta with your hands.
