This is a delicious salad recipe I learned from Food Network’s show Aarti Party featuring the fabulously tasty food of Aarti Sequeira. Her recipe is on their web site here. I pretty much followed their recipe exactly except I added a bit more sumac and I mixed the honey into the lime juice before putting the juice on the salad. My honey is raw and wouldn’t just easily pour.
I love watermelon, so much so that I have resisted all watermelon salad recipes thinking that it’s silly to mess with the perfect food, but the flavor combination intrigued me. It’s such a perfect blend of tart from the lemon and a hint our sour from the sumac and the creamy tang of the cheese all with the luscious melons and the bit of bite from the limes. The sum is truly greater than the parts, it’s plain amazing.
