For some recipes, the word "yum" doesn't quite do justice to how good they can be. Like this one. Combining watermelon, one of our favorite summer treats, with the juicy complexity of a great heirloom tomato, the creamy salty flavor of good feta cheese and freshly grilled chicken is an absolute culinary je ne sais quois. Best of all, this salad is light as a feather. It's perfect for a summer lunch or dinner, for the rest of the year for that matter. Plus it's brain-dead simple and quick to make. What's not to like?
