Watermelon, Feta, Mint Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Watermelon definitely isn't Dustin's thing, and it isn't really mine either. But I know watermelon, feta, and mint are a pretty popular combination, so Dustin was a good sport and tried this out with me. Neither of us loved it, but agreed it is definitely a much better way to eat watermelon than we'd ever had before. In the end we were both really glad we tried it out to work on our palettes to see how different flavors pair together. Even though it sounds a little weird, the sweet melon goes well with the salty feta and is really enhanced by the mint and the subtle balsamic vinegar.
