Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon Feta salad is cool, sweet and salty. This is the Greek inspired salad we have been eating almost daily in this heat wave! Paul was initially somewhat hesitant to embrace this funky salad, but after 4 bowl in one evening, I think we would both agree, watermelon and feta are surprisingly good friends in this delicious salad.  In these dog days of summer, this crisp quick salad is only five minutes away. It also tastes great with refreshing glass of basil lemonade.
