Watermelon Feta Salad (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: "Fresh and Simple: Contempory Israeli Cuisine," by Erez Komarowsky
Serves: 4

1 cup arugula
2 tbsp. tarragon leaves
2 tbsp. mint leaves
1/4 watermelon (firm, not mushy), diced in small cubes
200g (1 cup) feta cheese, diced in small cubes
Juice of half lemon

Place the leaves on the serving plate, top with tarragon, then mint. Cover with the watermelon, the cheese, and season with lemon juice.

I think the arugula can be replaced easily with mesclun.

Poster's Notes:
Eating watermelon with salty feta cheese in Israel was introduced by Olim [immigrants] from Balkan countries, where it is the favorite summer food!
