Recipe – Watermelon Feta Salad

Recipe - Watermelon Feta Salad

This salad combines fresh, summery watermelon with salty feta cheese. Arugula helps balance the sweetness and feta adds a salty attitude. You can substitute feta for fresh mozzarella or goat cheese. For added crunch, sprinkle with sunflower seeds. A seedless watermelon works best.
