Quick, vegan watermelon & feta salad

In the summertime, it feels like the only thing we need is watermelon. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner? No problem! To add some variety to our meal plan, we sometimes prepare some homemade vegan feta cheese and mix it with .. watermelon (for a delicious and refreshing salad! The best thing that can happen to you when it's 30°C or more! Besides, a watermelon feta salad is also incredibly simple and ready in 15 minutes.

You can use different variants for the vegan feta cheese. The easiest way is to buy a vegan feta cheese that is ready to use. But you can also easily prepare a homemade one made of tofu or cashews and almonds. We used our recipe for homemade vegan feta cheese made of tofu for this version.

  3. Peel 2 cloves of garlic and slightly crush them with the back of a knife or slice them. Then add them in your jar.
  4. Fill the jar with tofu dices but leave some space at the top.
  5. Now pour over olive oil until your jar is filled, lock it carefully and shake it so all the tofu gets covered in herbs.
