Here's another recipe I got from the newspaper.

1/2 lb Greek or Cypriot feta cheese

1/4 ripe watermelon

lemon juice

black pepper

a little light, fruity extra virgin olive oil

Peel and cut the watermelon into large bite size chunks ( if you've got the time and inclination, remove the seeds, or buy a seedless melon)

Drain feta and cut into similarly sized pieces. there should be rather more melon than cheese. toss the feta and melon together gently.

Strain, then sprinkle with a little lemon juice and season with pepper, divide salad among four plates drizzle a little olive oil over each serving, eat immediatley

serves 4.

You must have a better newspaper than I do. This salad sounds really interesting! I like feta. I like watermelon. Certainly never thought about combining the two.

Keep 'em coming.

Cool J. Sounds very interesting. I think that you would have to stay true to some high quality imported cheese to make this work properly ( no grocery store stuff here please). The pungency of the feta and the cool of the melon is an interesting thought. I wonder what our Papa thinks of this combination?? Can we convice someone to try this out on the weekend?

You are right Linda. I also think papa should volunteer, afterall, he's the Greek guy with the good olive oil!

I've had Feta with watermelon. It is wonderful. The tangy feta with the sweetness of watermelon is a great contrast. I think there was a post on this topic a month or so ago.....

Dear Friends:

I tried CoolJ's recipe yesterday. It was absolutely wonderful!

The pungency of the feta and the sweetness of the melon married under a light fruity olive oil, was absolutely great!

I used Greek DODONI Feta cheese, which I consider to be the best of feta cheeses that one can find in the US.

Thank you CoolJ for that great recipe!

:)
