“Summer of Salads” continues this week with a spin on a classic, the Watermelon Feta Salad.

We all have our favorite summer salad. One that includes fresh seasonal produce at its peek, ushering in years of summertime memories of picnics and family reunions.

For some, it’s a caprese salad of some sort. For others it’s a slaw or potato salad.

However, my nostalgic summer salad of choice is a Watermelon Feta Salad variation. A salad I’ve been making every summer since my wedding over sixteen years ago. Every time I make this salad, I’m reminded of that first newlywed summer in Oklahoma, sitting at the kitchen table in our first rental house, and my very first potted tomato plant.

All happy associations.
