Watermelon is among the most refreshing of summer foods. In a salad with feta cheese, it becomes dinner fare, and several hounds are fans of Nigella Lawson’s watermelon, feta, and black olive salad.

CreativeFoodie42 likes to use good balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, because “the feta and the watermelon really highlight those two ingredients.” hotoynoodle simply adds black olives, mint, and a little olive oil; and janeh combines watermelon, cucumber, feta, and mint and leaves it undressed. “Perfect and refreshing on a hot summer day,” she says. vcavett loves very thinly sliced red onions in hers.

hotoynoodle warns that watermelon feta salad doesn’t keep well because the watermelon weeps so much.

CHOW’s version includes tomatoes, and uses ricotta salata in place of feta.
