Watermelon, Orange, and Feta salad



Watermelon, Orange, and Feta salad

Feta is a salty, crumbly Greek cheese that’s traditionally made from sheep’s or goat’s milk and then brined, which means soaked in salty water. Here in the United States, feta is more often made from cow’s milk, which results in a milder cheese — but it might still taste quite strong to you, if you’re not used to the flavor. We love adding it to salads, because it crumbles so nicely and those crumbles add a little salty punch to each bite of food. If you’re still not sure about feta, try this salad, which balances the strong taste of the cheese with the sweetness of fruit and the fresh flavor of herbs. You just might like it after all!
