Recipe

Watermelon and feta is still one of my go to summer salads even though its become increasingly popular over the last few years. I just can't get enough of the sweet refreshing watermelon paired with creamy salty feta and tart red onions. It's dreamy. And while it is traditionally made with mint, lately I have been swapping in cilantro and adding a simple lime vinaigrette to keep things fresh. Usually I also add a couple minced serrano peppers for heat as well, which I highly recommend if you like spice.

    Kristen, when I saw this salad, I just knew I had to make it. Living in South Louisiana, we have unbearable hot weather during the summer, so this just what I wanted in a salad. I absolutely loved it! I wish I would have had a couple of serrano or jalapeno peppers because I like spicy food. I think when I make this again, which may just have to be tomorrow, I will put all the ingredients for the dressing plus a diced pepper to give it a kick and emulsify the dressing as well as put one in the salad. Thanks for posting this recipe!
