Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon and feta might seem like an unlikely combination. But it proved to be a winning one, and an excellent summer treat!

I’d been wanting to try the idea for a while, so when we stumbled across a pile of free watermelon the other day, it seemed like the perfect opportunity. The recipe is not only extremely easy, but looks beautiful on the plate. It’s the perfect effortless way to enjoy the fruit of the season, especially if you love salty and sweet combinations as much as I do.

We enjoyed the additional flavor of the rosemary in the salad, but found it to be just as good without it as well. Enjoy!

    This has been a tradition in Syria from a long time ago. We east watermelon with anytime of white unsalted cheese (grilled haloumi works well too) and some people have it with bread too. It’s not really a salad but it works well. :)

      Wow, I had no idea this was traditionally Syrian – how interesting! I have been meaning to try grilled haloumi for a while too – any tips?

    I love this combination. You should also try watermelon and feta wrapped in prosciutto. I once ate an entire plate of it instead of a “real” dinner!

    I would not have ever imagined to bring watermelon and feta together, but they both are my favorite food and picture looks amazing so I am going to make it and I know I will love it, thank you for being unconventional.
