We had this salad at the Food & Garden Festival in Epcot, Disney World, in April. My son loved it so much I told him when we got home I would make it for him. Well, I saw watermelons on sale the other day and picked up one that looked nice and let it sit on my counter for a day or two. I knew I needed to use the watermelon before it turned so I decided to make the salad last night.
We had fresh greens from our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share to go with it so it was a perfect night for this dish!
The entire family was surprised at how much they liked the salad and that I ate it willingly! My son said it was the bitterness of the greens with the saltiness of the feta and the sweetness of the watermelon that made it yummy.
We served this before our meal and it was a nice refreshing start to the meal.
