Sweet Watermelon & Feta

image

The mix of sweet watermelon and savory feta make for a mouthwatering combination and craving satisfier.  By adding orzo pasta you can turn this recipe into the main entree, if you like.  The grocery stores in the small town we were vacationing in did not carry orzo when I made this dish (and took the photos), but I have included the petite pasta below because it’s so good as an option.
