watermelon + feta salad

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad. Other fruits, however, are more versatile and love bridging the gap between traditional and fruit salads. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and watermelons all work well when paired with salty cheese, crunchy greens and sweet, reduced balsamic vinegar. Don’t believe me? Try my watermelon and feta salad and discover the wisdom of savoury fruit salads for yourself.
