“"Sweet, salty, tangy, and hot. This salad hits all the points of your palate," says chef Hugh Acheson, head chef of Five&Ten in Athens, Georgia. InStyle magazine claims this is the "Summer's Best Salad" in their June 09 Issue. The season's most refreshing dish combines tasty watermelon and feta spiked with chiles. This appetizing recipe goes well with grilled chicken, but you can also serve it as a sophisticated dessert.”
