A salad of incredible visual and gastronomic appeal. Watermelon Puzzle has it all!   If you don’t like kiwi, try substituting yellow watermelon or cantaloupe or even honeydew.  If you don’t like Feta, try Ricotta Salata or just skip the cheese and use all  fruit.  It’s fun to serve, and everyone loves it. Our most popular summertime recipe.
