Watermelon & Feta Salad

DSC_0182

Watermelon is the ultimate summer fruit.  Cool, sweet, and incredibly messy it is the single food item I think about when I remember my childhood summers.  Much to my mother’s chagrin, my brother and I could spit watermelon seeds at each other for hours.  It wasn’t until much later that I even encountered a seedless watermelon and at that point in my life, I welcomed the easiness of the seedless factor. But back then, the seeds were a big part of the fun.

This salad is so easy that it is almost embarrassing and puts a grown up twist on this childhood favorite. The saltiness of the feta contrasts with the sweetness of the watermelon in a surprising, but good, way. If you can find seedless watermelon use it since it makes the preparation process so simple.  Here in Albania we can’t find seedless watermelons but the extra effort it takes to remove all of the seeds is so worth it.
