  • plain yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, finely crushed
  • salt
  • cubed watermelon
  • olives
  • chunks of feta
  • cherry or grape tomatoes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil
  • fresh mint or basil (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the plain yogurt (about 1/2 cup for an average-sized serving) with the garlic and a pinch of salt.
  2. If you use more yogurt, a clove of garlic will still be enough, particularly if you have time to refrigerate it for a few hours or overnight, to allow the flavours to blend and intensify.
  3. Smear the garlicky yogurt onto a platter.
  4. Arrange the cubed watermelon, olives, feta and tomatoes however you like, keeping them in a single layer so they’re easy to eat with a skewer or your fingers.
  5. Add a grinding of black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil if you like.
  6. Scatter or garnish with whole or torn fresh mint or basil.
  7. Serve immediately.
