Recipe Of The Month: September 2014

I wanted to try this recipe for months, if not years. And I am not being dramatic here ūüėČ

People were raving about it, and I was always afraid that I may not like it, but little did I know. It is as good, as everyone says it is. So what salad am I talking about? The  already cult watermelon and feta one. I have seen  quite a few variations but decided to try the basic one:
