Watermelon Salad With Feta and Tomato


This Watermelon Salad With Feta and Tomato is a summer abundance treat. I remember summer evenings, enjoying fresh produce from sweltering day’s work in our family’s country garden. As a young child, I enjoyed watching my grandfather plow the earth with his John Deere 60 and discing it to prepare the space for our extra large garden each spring. I loved walking along behind the tractor, feeling the soft dirt on my bare feet. There was none other that compared to the fresh tomatoes and watermelon that we grew.

In this delightful recipe, the salty feta and slightly bitter olive oil make this salad completely satisfying. And add in some sweet heirloom tomatoes along with wonderfully ripe watermelon. And you have a beautiful summer treat!
