A classic easy and colorful Apricots Prosciutto Feta salad with lime and mint for some extra freshness. The summer salad is also a super healthy meal.

My favorite August salad by far. This is the perfect “I’m too lazy to cook but still want something very delicious” meal. There is literally minimum effort involved. One thing about salads that I don’t like is the amount of time you spend cutting and chopping all the beautiful ingredients. Sometimes it takes longer to make a salad than it would be to cook a warm meal from scratch.
Because most of the time we want a salad because we want something light and easy.
This salad is not one of those salads. You literally need a max of 5 minutes prepping the salad. There is also no mess involved as we won’t make any dressing, because the warm feta together with the lime and mint, create a dressing while mixing everything together.

  • Apricots.

    Flavorful and super rich in nutrition. Don’t underestimate the small stone fruit as it has many Vitamins, and contains a high amount of flavonoids and potassium. The fruit is a rich source of Vitamin A and beta-carotene which both work as antioxidants.
  • Cucumber.

    We need something refreshing for this salad to balance the sweetness from the apricots and the salty from the feta. Cucumber is the perfect source for that.
  • Cherry tomatoes.

    You can use red or colorful tomatoes. The different colors add more different flavor to the dish. Red onion. Makes the salad a little bit spicy and flavorful.
  • Feta.

    High-quality Feta for the perfect outcome. The warm Feta will become a creamy kind of sauce which will be the perfect salad dressing.
  • Prosciutto.

    I never loved Prosciutto as much as in this salad. The sweet apricots together with the salty soft Prosciutto, are just amazing.
  • Olive oil.

    As always high quality.
  • Italian Oregano.

    to spice the Feta a little bit up.
  • Thyme.

    Amazing with Italian oregano.
  • Mint leaves.

    Fresh mint leaves add an extra fresh kick to the whole salad.
  • Lime.

    Our source of sourness.
