With watermelon going out of the season, this is a great time to take advantage of a great salad before saying goodbye to the tastes of summer. It will be a real treat in the fall with the burst of flavors from the watermelon, feta cheese, and a vinaigrette that includes currant jelly make this the perfect side dish for any meat entrée. It can also be enjoyed for lunch or alone as a light dinner.
