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.

Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Start with a small amount of salt since the feta is salty.
Toss together the watermelon, feta, red onion, cilantro, and dressing. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
