How to Make Nuba Restaurant’s Summery Watermelon and Feta Salad

Words by Alex Loewen

This dish combines everyone’s favorite summer produce to create a salad that comes together in minutes with ingredients from the farmer’s market.

The fresh herbs and juicy watermelon provide an excellent contrast to the saltiness of the feta, and pair perfectly with a grilled main—like our new cauliflower or bison steaks at Nuba—to create a quick, easy, delicious summer dinner.
