Summer Salad Recipe

A few weeks ago I made this watermelon and feta salad for a party.  This might be one of my favorite summer salads.   It’s light, it’s fresh, sweet mixed with salty,  and full of interesting textures that makes me go mmmmm.   You really can’t mess this one up, and there are a ton of recipes (some of which I’ve provided links to below).  The basic rule is: fresh seedless watermelon, a salty cheese like feta, torn mint or basil, olive oil, pepper.  You can add olives or thinly-sliced red onion, you can serve it over greens or as a composed salad.  Try it, you’ll love it.

    I must say when I saw this weird combo I felt the same as when I was in Brazil and witnessed the tradition of slathering mayo on their pizza! I was too chicken to try that and my arteries blessed me. This combo is too amusing not to be tried. Its the perfect salad to end a day at the beach. Loved it.
