My Summery BBQ Salad

My Summery BBQ Salad

I used to not be so crazy about any type of salad. Now I love arugula salad, so I try to combine it with lots of different ingredients. So last year, I made this salad for a friend once. She invited me to her BBQ and I told her I'd bring a salad. She warned me she wasn't going to eat lots of salad because she's not crazy about it. Now, every time I get invited to her place, I get asked to bring THAT salad. So I thought that this Summer, I would share the recipe on my blog so everyone could enjoy it even without me ;) 

I tend to have this salad for lunch at work as well, it is quick and easy, but usually I have it as a side with burgers or at a BBQ. This is a Summer salad, the nectarine works really well with all the flavours. I make it as often as I can as long as nectarines are in season, one of my all-time favorite fruits!

WHAT DO YOU NEED? (as a side for 3-4 people)

  • 3 nectarines, ripe and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cucumber, also finely cubed 
  • 2 medium size spring onions, finely sliced
  • a pack of arugula salad (100g - 200g)
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • 200g (or less - depends what you prefer) of crumbled feta
  • some olive oil



  • Combine all the ingredients and mix gently with your hands. Done!
  • No need for seasoning as the feta is already quite salty and the peppery flavor you get from the arugula.
