The flavor combination might sound odd at first, just ask Josh…he was not interested in tasting this salad, but in the end, the salad won him over.

  1. hello, just found this recipe and it reminded me of home. Eating watermelons with feta cheese is common in Turkey (or at the southern parts) Our favorite dish (for lunch) during those hot summers. I will try adding some fresh mint next time like you did. 🙂
