Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon is in season and at its absolute best right now, juicy, and when served chilled, extremely refreshing. Perfect when it comes to breaking your fast during Ramadan. The addition of crumbly feta cheese, pine nuts, lime, pomegranate and basil creates a well-rounded flavor and nutritional profile.
