"This side salad is what we like to call a ‘secret weapon’ in the land of potlucks. It’s the surprise hit of any bring-a-dish event, particularly if the meal is outdoors. The sweet watermelon matches up perfectly with the salty cheese. Slam it together just before leaving the house or bring the ingredients along and toss it all when you get there to keep it crunchiest. Hint: Crumble your own feta to keep the chunks sizeable and do add the red pepper."
Watermelon and Feta Salad
From Big Sky Cooking by Meredith Brokaw and Ellen Wright
3 cups of 2-inch chunks of watermelon seeded (or seedless)
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
coarsely ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, optional
In a large bowl combine the watermelon, feta and a few generous grinds of black pepper.
For a little more zing, add the red pepper flakes if you like.
The picture is courtesty of The Domestic Goddess who has her own version of the recipe, but with parsley and olive oil.
