I love this simple salad. it always surprises guests, since most people don't think of combining cheese and watermelon.
Growing up in the south we salted our plain watermelon, so adding a slightly salty feta, seems perfect.
Variation: Add heirloom tomatoes, substitute feta for a sharp Italian cheese and basil instead of mint. Vey yummy.
