Watermelon Salad With Feta and Mint

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Garlic Chick

This was posted in the local paper. It originally was published in the July 2009 issue of "Food & Wine" magazine from Jacques Pepin. This watermelon salad is sweet and salty. The recipe suggests preparing just before eating to prevent it from becoming watery. I haven't tried it but am putting it here for safe keeping.

Fantastic! Awesome flavor combinations. I made this for our Pig and Lamb Roast on Labor Day and it was devoured. The only change I made was to exclude the olives. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
