Watermelon Salad #KitchenMatrixCookingProject

Juicy chunks of watermelon tossed with feta, cucumbers and tomatoes and seasoned with mint makes the perfect summer side for your next get together.


Welcome to the Kitchen Matrix Cooking Project.  A couple of friends and I are cooking our way through the Kitchen Matrix Cookbook by Mark Bittman.



We are always happy to have new bloggers join in the fun and you don't have to own the cookbook.  You can do a web search and find nearly all of Bittman's recipes right on line.

This week we are looking at the section for Watermelon 12 Ways.  Bittman has his cookbook broken down by ingredient and then he gives you a bunch of ways in which to use said ingredient.  Not really recipes, as much as ideas.  I read, I get inspired and I create.

Today I am sharing a watermelon salad inspired by those in The Kitchen Matrix.  But first, let's look at what Cam and Karen are sharing.




And now for my recipe inspired by Bittman's Greek Style.  I substituted scallions for red onion because that was what I had on hand.  I omitted the parsley because I didn't have any and the olives because my hubby is not a fan.
