Summer watermelon salad

I’m from Egypt, a very hot & humid country during the summer, which is when I used to visit yearly. Cooking in hot climates is very unappealing & tiresome, so member’s of my family would rely alot on fruit, smoothies & lemonades etc.

One particular dish they would indulge in was grapes or watermelon with a white cheese very similar to feta. My grandma used to have this regularly & it seemed weird to me. I mean its fruit & cheese, a combo many of us wouldn’t associate with the other.

However I am open minded and enjoy trying new things and I’m glad I did. Watermelon and cheese is strangely delicious and so refreshing on those, its too hot to cook days.
