Watermelon Salad with Feta and Mint

Summer is here and we’re all in! Bring this fresh and salty-sweet Watermelon Salad with Feta, Lime, and Mint to any backyard cookout and it’ll put any grilled dish to shame.

Call me adventurous, but I’d never heard of a watermelon and feta salad before versions of it started popping up on food blogs all over the place. Even then, the mere thought of it made me pause. Watermelon with salty cheese? Yes, exactly.

Last week, my curiosity was finally satisfied when I was served one of these salads at my friend Peg’s dinner party. I couldn’t wait to recreate it! It’s wonderfully refreshing and light and perfect for hot days like we’re having in California now.
