Y'all, this salad is my go-to, cat's meow right now. I have at least one bowl every day! Have you made or are you already obsessed with watermelon- and feta-based salads? I like them with mint and aged balsamic; with a serrano-lime vinaigrette a la Hugh Acheson; with pistachios, mint, olive oil and Maldon salt; with tomatoes and arugula; and so on. Watermelon and feta are such a natural, winning pair. They love each other and make a terrifically sweet-salty foundation for many extras that float your boat.
Before digging in to one of those today, I made a batch of my plum-basil jam. I love this recipe. Just three ingredients meld magically over heat and what results is a beautiful coalescence that's at once sweet, tart and herbaceous. Beautiful!
