Watermelon and Feta Salad With Serrano Chile Vinaigrette

""Sweet, salty, tangy, and hot. This salad hits all the points of your palate," says chef Hugh Acheson, head chef of Five&Ten in Athens, Georgia. InStyle magazine claims this is the "Summer's Best Salad" in their June 09 Issue. The season's most refreshing dish combines tasty watermelon and feta spiked with chiles. This appetizing recipe goes well with grilled chicken, but you can also serve it as a sophisticated dessert."

    Just getting ready to make this. Looks good. Doesn't the video show avocado in the salad? I don't see that in the ingredients. Thanks.

    Loved it! Instead of layering, I cubed the watermelon, used crumbled feta, tossed it like a salad. Easy colorful, refreshing and delicious, it was a big hit with all the guests!

    This is an elegant and easy salad. I found this recipe and thought, where am I going to find those ingredients in my small grocery store? Well, a brand new Kroger Marketplace opened up and they had everything I needed to try this! The only thing I substituted was white wine vinegar in place of the champagne vinegar. Otherwise, I made the recipe exactly as directed. It was simply wonderful. An explosion of flavors in every bite! I will definitely be making this again and again and again!!!
