Green Beans, Tomato and Watermelon Salad with Feta Cheese - WwDH



This week, our group, Eating With Ellie, made a salad with sugar snap peas, tomato, watermelon and feta cheese.  I had to sub in green beans which I think worked well.  I did omit the mint that was called for but other than that the oil, lemon and black pepper were included.

Kayte selected this recipe and I was intrigued.  I could not imagine watermelon with vegetables and feta cheese but I wanted to find out what it would be like.  It is great. The very best part is the combination of feta and watermelon, the cool sweetness against the tang of the cheese.

There is a reason, we venture into new territories, and it is because we would never know about those good food combinations that exist although the sound less than appealing.

  1. I picked this one because it was so pretty and figured it would be great at a picnic as everything could stand at room temp. I thought I would like it because I liked all the ingredients, but I wasn't certain how it was going to turn out in this combination. Turns out it was really really good! I would make this again, great for summer! Yours looks good, too, and I think the green beans would be perfect in it if you can't find sugar snap peas! Green beans in summer are always a good thing!

  2. This was good, wasn't it. The sweet and salty pair well together.
