This salad is the stuff that urban legends are made of. You may think that watermelon and feta sounds strange, but seriously, give this salad a chance and you will wonder why it wasn’t part of your childhood summer memories. The juiciness of watermelon melts in your mouth with the creamy tang of feta cheese, while the mint brings a subtle pop followed by a light kick from black pepper. It’s a prime example of why we should all play with our food more often.
