Helmy's melon salad
I know, I've posted about feta and watermelon together several times before. It really is a match made in heaven! And I think the best dish with these ingredients that I've tried was the one served to me at my friend Helmy's house. She's a wonderful cook, and also a cat breeder - the owner of all those sleepy kittens I posted about a while ago.
Her salad had watermelon, nectarine, honeydew melon, finely chopped chilli, fresh mint, oil and salt - olives and feta cheese is served on the side, and so is slices of smoked turkey. And don't forget a good grinding of black pepper on top - it keeps it from being too dessert-y.
