I have always loved a watermelon and feta salad – so refreshing and such a wonderful combination of flavour and texture, but add some sweet prawns and a herb salad and you have the Mediterranean on a plate – colour, flavour and texture to perfection. Add some crusty bread and you have a light meal for 4-6. Serve with a crisp Chardonnay.
