In honor of Watermelon Day, I thought it would be a fun idea to create a fun spin on the traditional watermelon feta salad by combining it with the appearance of a watermelon tart. The presentation is adorable, and gives a whole new life to such a simple recipe.
The sunflower kernels is something you don't really see in watermelon & feta salad, but it adds just the perfect amount of salt & crunch, and compliments it so well. You can eat it as a snack or as a light meal. You can even cut the watermelon into smaller circles for a fun party appetizer that is sure to be the talk of the party.
