More tasty than I imagined it would be. I used a sweet baby watermelon, fresh round goat cheese not feta, sea salt, plus the rest of the ingredients minus the optional nigella seeds as I didn't have any on hand.

We loved it . . . I have a recipe for a grilled watermelon salad and wanted to try this version. Didn't change a thing! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT #6
