Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon and Feta Salad

When I was at the market this morning I saw some yellow watermelons that looked pretty tasty. I don't normally get watermelons because I walk to get my groceries and a watermelon is a little heavy to carry home. My walk home from the farmers market takes about 30 minutes so I would normally pass on getting a watermelon. But, I remembered seeing this post on watermelon and feta. The idea of feta and watermelon together intrigued me enough to pick up a melon and carry it home. I was having problems cutting the watermelon into perfect squares so I decided to just cut it into chunks. I crumbled the feta and tossed it and the melon together in a bowl. I also added some basil. It was pretty good. The salty and dry feta really contrasts nicely with the sweet and wet watermelon. I think that mint would also go really well in this.

Watermelon and cheese: heaven!! We rarely see any yellow varieties here and we don't grow them. Uhmm... that gives me an idea what to grow this Summer.

I would have never thought of this combination, but I bet it goes great. I have always loved fruit in salads.

Try watermelon with feta, basil, olive oil and toasted pine nuts!! I tried that recently and I love this salad.

Adding the toasted pine nuts sounds good.

Another good combination is watermelon, feta, fresh mint. And then pour olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top. Let it soak for 20 minutes or so before eating. It sounds strange, but it's delicious!
