    Basic Watermelon Salad Recipe

    This basic watermelon salad recipe is courtesy of the National Watermelon Promotion Board, the pros who know watermelons.

    Choosing a watermelon

    Look for a watermelon symmetrical in shape that has that yellowish-white spot indicating that it laid on the ground in the field when it was growing.

    Knock on it, and if you hear that hollow sound, it’s ripe. If it’s shiny, it’s not ripe. It should be dark in color.

    Try to find one without bumps. They indicate that the melon didn’t receive the proper mixture of sunshine & water when it was growing.

    Choose the heaviest watermelon. This means it is very juicy!

    A seedless watermelon saves you from spending time digging out all the seeds & messing up those beautiful cubes.

    Choosing the feta

    If you prefer firm cubes of feta, toss the salad first and then add the cheese last to keep it from getting soggy.

    But if you prefer the feta to be more a part of the dressing, use crumbled feta.
