    yooper's Note:

    A co-worker introduced me to this salad. The combination sounds odd, but it all works! The sweetness of the melon, the tanginess of the feta, and the tartness of the lime combine to make an amazing taste sensation!

      I wish I could give this more than five stars. This is like a Mediterranean salad from an alternate universe, with watermelon instead of tomato, and it is delicious. The sweetness of the watermelon is offset by the sour, salt, onion flavors. I didn't have fresh herbs, so I used a pinch of dried parsley and a pinch of Greek oregano instead. I also used peppercorn feta crumbles because that is what I had a package of. Also used more olives than were called for, but that's because I love them. This was really surprising and really filling. Try it if you like Greek salads.

      I was a little afraid to try this combination but it works! If you like feta cheese, you'll like this recipe. I'd suggest making it a day ahead of time, it was much tastier after chilling overnight.

      Don't be afraid! Make it right now while watermelon is coming into peak season. Another reviewer mentioned Greek salad... Yes! If you like the taste of a Greek salad, you will really like this one.
