This watermelon salad with feta and basil is very easy to make and it is extremely refreshing and flavorful. This is a great side for grilled foods.
The saltiness of the Feta cheese tones down the sweetness of the watermelon. Mix this with some lemon juice and the minty hint from the basil leaves and you have a winner.
This salad is at its best when it is very cold so make it refrigerate it for awhile before you serve it. Make sure you keep it in a cooler if you are taking it to a picnic or grilled party.
Watermelon is very inexpensive when it is season. This is a frugal salad that delivers great flavor and satisfaction.
