Here's another recipe I got from the newspaper.

1/2 lb Greek or Cypriot feta cheese

1/4 ripe watermelon

lemon juice

black pepper

a little light, fruity extra virgin olive oil

Peel and cut the watermelon into large bite size chunks ( if you've got the time and inclination, remove the seeds, or buy a seedless melon)

Drain feta and cut into similarly sized pieces. there should be rather more melon than cheese. toss the feta and melon together gently.

Strain, then sprinkle with a little lemon juice and season with pepper, divide salad among four plates drizzle a little olive oil over each serving, eat immediatley

serves 4.

Cool J. Sounds very interesting. I think that you would have to stay true to some high quality imported cheese to make this work properly ( no grocery store stuff here please). The pungency of the feta and the cool of the melon is an interesting thought. I wonder what our Papa thinks of this combination?? Can we convice someone to try this out on the weekend?

You are right Linda. I also think papa should volunteer, afterall, he's the Greek guy with the good olive oil!

Dear Friends:

I tried CoolJ's recipe yesterday. It was absolutely wonderful!

The pungency of the feta and the sweetness of the melon married under a light fruity olive oil, was absolutely great!

I used Greek DODONI Feta cheese, which I consider to be the best of feta cheeses that one can find in the US.

Thank you CoolJ for that great recipe!

:)
