You may not think to serve sweet watermelon with salty feta cheese, but the combination is actually quite tasty and refreshing. It is also a Greek favorite in the summer and is eaten as a snack or a light meal. This variation includes paper-thin slices of red onion and a touch of balsamic vinegar to turn this fabulous taste combination into something truly memorable.
This salad is the perfect dish to bring to a cookout or picnic since there is no lettuce that will get soggy. It is also a bit out of the ordinary and will add color to any buffet table. You can cube the watermelon, or for an even prettier presentation, use a melon baller to make perfect spheres of fruit. Make sure to buy a seedless watermelon so you are not stuck removing the seeds before cutting it up. And feel free to add some fresh mint for a bit of green.
- Place the watermelon in a bowl, top with most of the onions, and then add the feta cheese.
- Place the remaining onions on top.
- Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and serve.
