Minted Watermelon Feta Tomato Salad Recipe

Is this salad combo wacky enough for you? I admit this watermelon feta tomato salad is quite a stretch from the way watermelon is usually enjoyed: only one small good problem— watermelon feta tomato salad is fabulous, so go for it! You must have noticed as I did that seeded watermelon is much tastier than the “convenient” and bland seedless hybrid. I recommend using the familiar watermelon; just spit out the seeds discreetly, OK?

Just one more wonderful thing while you are making watermelon feta tomato salad: did you know you could juice watermelon, rind and all? Watermelon juice: Who knew? Delicious, and a nutritional powerhouse!
