Watermelon and Feta cheese make such a perfect pair. The saltiness of the Feta is the perfect complement to the inherent sweetness of the watermelon. When paired with the peppery taste of fresh mint and the tangy goodness of the homemade lime-cilantro vinaigrette, you have an incredible taste sensation that will become a new family favorite.
