This is one of the tastiest salads I have ever had! And so easy. The subtle spice from the chilli flakes, mixed with the refreshing watermelon is just great. I too eat this with lamb, usually a lamb leg steak. Also good as a bbq salad!

This was a lovely, refreshing summer salad. The watermelon and feta are sublime. Served with lamb kofta and pitta bread.
