Watermelon & Feta Salad

This is a recipe that Justin and I tasted at the Ocean View Delight in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It is surprisingly simple, refreshing, and has a great sweet/salty/tangy flavor profile. The owner of the restaurant told us it's a very common Turkish summertime dish.

All it is really is sliced watermelon and feta cheese. We had ours at the Ocean View with pita bread as well, which is great.

To kick it up a bit, we added some blood orange olive oil and and cranberry-pear balsamic from Di Olivas olive oil store. The citrus punch really elevated the dish and gave it an extra dimension that really sends it over the top. Highly recommended. You an add some blood orange juice and a splash of olive oil on top of the salad if you don't want to buy the fancy stuff.

Perfect for the blistering St. Louis summer heat — which isn't supposed to dip below 100 degrees this week, incidentally.

Oh, well. With this salad at hand, bring it on.
