Cold and refreshing, watermelon is one of Summer’s juicy pleasures. With a 37 pound watermelon from my local Farmer’s Market on hand, this weekend is all about the melon.
This salad doesn’t keep well overnight because of the melon’s water content and the feta. However, it’s easy enough to make one or two portions for a quick snack.
