I wasnt sure what to expect from this salad.  A long time ago I created a recipe for tofu feta, which I posted here.  So with that around, I figured I would give this watermelon salad a go.  I had no idea what to expect but I’ve been seeing feta and watermelon salads plastered all over the internet, so finally I went for it.

This salad was seriously delicious, so much that both John and I were speechless while eating.  It was sweet (but not too sweet) and savory, with a whole lotta freshness and crunch!  The flavors melded together perfectly and neither of us were expecting this dish to be THAT good.

I have no idea what the actual feta and watermelon salads taste like, but vegans- don’t feel left out.  While I’ve never had the real thing (nor do I plan to) I’m just gonna go ahead and say this version is better.  Better for your health, the environment, and for the animals.  Oh yeah, and your taste buds!  That too!  If your thinking fruity salads aren’t your thing, just try this.  I despise fruit in salad but this made me a believer.  I can’t wait to make it again.
