Feta Watermelon Salad is a Summer Starter

Feta Watermelon Salad a great starter for the French Alps

I have tried this Feta Watermelon Salad recipe many times. It’s from a Mary Berry cookbook and most things I try of her’s seem easy to follow and taste delicious.

It’s a great summer starter, especially if the main course is quite substantial. I have used it many times on our French Alps walking breaks and the good thing about this recipe is the watermelons in the French Alps are delicious.
