Watermelon Salad with Feta

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by JustJanS

Thanks Dancer^ for another great recipe. I have to tell you I hate watermelon, but after having a similar dish at a friends, I'm converted (in this salad only;-)) I made a half recipe for an appetiser for us last night. It's sweet, salty, sour, hot, has some really interesting textures, and is so simple to assemble. The other version I ate of this included mint leaves, so I added some to yours Dancer^. I also used a generous grinding of sea salt which it seemed to need. There are a few of these watermelon/feta salads on 'zaar, but this didn't look too acidic. You want all the flavours to stand out-and they did.
