Notes

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.
