Watermelon and Feta Salad

These babies are popping up all over the internet and I just had to have some. I thought that the combination of watermelon, vinegar and feta would be amazing…and it was!!!

The sweet and salty watermelon and feta combo is a really nice one. I like the poblano pepper in this salad!

I remember when I was a much less-adventurous child, I went to a potluck and someone brought this salad. I kind of chalked it up to there being a bunch of people from India at the party, and probably stuck to whatever I considered normal at the time.

This looks great - I had this last week but the person who made it used fresh Parmesan cheese and it was wonderful!! I love this version!

I love this salad. I sometimes pop some blueberries in, too. What perfect summer food!
