Watermelon is the quintessential summer fruit, and this salad is one of our favorite ways to enjoy it.
Salty feta serves as the perfect pairing to the sweet and juicy watermelon, while the pistachios provide nice texture and crunch. We picture ourselves enjoying this salad poolside with a comfy chair, a cold cocktail and a good magazine. It’s a perfect bite of food on its own, or a fantastic side for a summer barbecue or dinner on the patio.
