Want to know what the perfect summer salad is? Let's just say it involved mouthwatering watermelon. And feta cheese! Check out this video recipe for a watermelon and feta salad.
Nothing beats the heat like watermelon. Light and refreshing, it has a texture that goes perfectly in a salad with just a bit of crunch and its own indigenous sweetness. Balsamic vinegar and feta cheese add all of the seasoning and zest you need and fresh basil kicks in its unmistakable aroma and flavor. Annie B. Copps, Food Editor at Yankee Magazine, knows a thing or two about entertaining and this salad is a winner for your next outdoor get-together.
