Recipe FAQs:

Can I substitute feta cheese with another cheese?

You can experiment with other cheeses like goat cheese or ricotta if you prefer a milder flavor. Keep in mind that the choice of cheese will impact the overall taste and texture of the salad.

 How do I select a ripe watermelon for this salad?

Look for a watermelon with a few specific qualities. It should feel heavy for its size, and have a uniform shape. The rind should be dull, not shiny. Tap the watermelon, and if it produces a deep, hollow sound, it’s likely to be ripe and juicy.

What is the difference between seeded and seedless watermelons?

Seeded watermelons need the seeds removed before you enjoy them. Seedless watermelons are sweeter and have a better texture. No need to remove the seeds before eating!
