Summer salad with feta and pickled cherries

Summer salad with feta and pickled cherries

Serves 4 as a starter

Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 10 minutes
Cooling time 30 minutes

 

Pickled cherries

50 ml red wine vinegar

1 tbsp sea salt

150ml water

100g caster sugar

200g cherries, halved and stones removed

 

1 medium courgette, stalk removed

1/2 firm cantaloupe melon, skin and seeds removed

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

pinch of sea salt

small handful mint leaves

100g feta

 

Place the red wine vinegar, salt, water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring to make sure all the salt and sugar has dissolved. Take off the heat, pour into a bowl or container and leave to cool for 5 minutes. Add the cherries and leave to cool to room temperature. (If making ahead of time, place in the fridge to chill).

 

Use a speed peeler or mandolin to make courgette ribbons the length of the courgette. Thinly slice with a knife or use a mandoline to thinly slice the melon into long strips. Toss the melon in a bowl with the olive oil and a pinch of salt. Spread on a large platter. Sprinkle on the mint, crumble on the feta and scatter over the cherries. Drizzle a couple of tbsps. of the pickling liquid over the top.

 

Tips

Feta can be replaced with a creamy burrata or mozzarella.

The pickled cherries make a great accompaniment to a cheese board.

Get ahead

The cherries can be kept in the fridge for a few days. The flavour will intensify.
