Watermelon Feta Salad Recipe

Inventive food combining isn’t new, but you are starting to see more and more chefs experimenting with food combinations you would have never thought would actually taste good. Think adding sea salt to chocolate, or the latest health craze of mixing avocado and chocolate in shakes, etc. Additions to hamburgers grow wilder by the day; crunchy peanut butter and potato chips, anyone?

One of my favorite food combinations is the watermelon feta salad. It’s popping up on restaurant menus everywhere. There are lots of variations, but this recipe is my favorite. The watermelon feta salad is a great salad to serve at the end of the summer when watermelons are plentiful. The saltiness of the feta compliments the sweetness of the watermelon, and the lemony cucumber dressing makes every bite sparkle.
