Sweet Watermelon and Salty Feta! what an awesome combo for my re-blog Monday. I first made this salad 2 years ago and we really did enjoy it. It’s perfect served alongside chicken, steak and fish. I like to add a little arugula to it as well. The contrasting flavors compliment one another beautifully. Enjoy and give it a go.
Your first reaction to this combo is probably: Ew?!?! Why, oh why would anyone do this?!?! However, it is a delicious, cool, sweet and savory summer salad with real bite. I have to admit that when I put it out, my husband, Joel, first thought it was tomatoes, but I had to fess up before he would touch it (he is very, very picky). The feta got him (he’ll eat almost anything with feta on it). Well, low and behold, he liked it; and even helped himself to seconds. This is just a wonderful, different approach to summer salads. I hope you enjoy it and let me know how it goes for you.
3 lbs. watermelon, cut into small cubes (pits and rind removed)
6 oz crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup toasted pecans or pignoli, whatever you like (toast nuts for about 5 minutes in oven at 400 degrees)
