I wasn't that impressed with this. I had a very sweet, juicy, soft watermelon, and melon was the primary flavor without being able to taste much else (so I might have well just eaten some watermelon straight). Also, after sitting out for only a few minutes the feta was swimming in a pool of watery juice. I might have liked it better if it had some other fruits or vegetables in the salad (like cucumbers or onions) to balance it out and make it so there was more to this salad than just watermelon.

Like Neohippie, we weren't very impressed by this. It was ok but if I made it again I would cut the watermelon ahead of time and then drain it before adding the feta. It was too watery by the time dinner was over.

Made this for a pot luck and it went over very well. I did not use the red pepper flakes. We did have fresh cut mint for those who wanted to add it. We used the feta in a brine.

DH always likes salt on his watermelon, so I thought he'd like this. He sure did, but so did I, and I never want salt on my melon! I halved the recipe so it would only serve 3-4. Well, I must admit it only served two. Our watermelon was cut up closer to 1-inch cubes and was very easy to eat. This is such an easy, amazing salad, I think we'll be making it quite often. Thank you so much, JoJoStar!

I made this last night for Valentines Day. I cut up the watermelon into small hearts and just topped it with pepper and feta. It looked very cute, and was delicious. Good idea for an anniversary as well. Thank you.

This is a stone cold winner. Super easy and pretty.we followed the recipe down to the last word. we did put the watermelon in a colander to drain before putting everything together. Love the moderate heat from the peppers. This will be a summer regular. Thanks for the recipe

Awesome way to spark up some watermelon - we also added some cukes and left the blk ppr and red ppr flakes as opt for each individual plate but it is great to add them

SOOOOOOO Goood!!!!!! We absolutely loved this salad!! Talk about a wonderful and easy salad to take to a pot-luck, etc.!!! The balance is outstanding between the salty, tangy feta and the sweet watermelon!!! Loved the touch of heat too!! Served this with Italian Country Chicken & Peppers and it was a wonderful meal!!!

I thought the combination of watermelon and feta was great. I left out the ground pepper and red pepper flakes and added mint instead. Delish. Thanks for giving me a great jumping off point!
