Capital Grille’s Tomato, Watermelon and Feta Salad

Summer is but a few short months, so one must strike while the season is hot. Doing just that, Executive Chef Jim Nuetzi has created a recipe for a picnic-perfect salad featuring fresh tomatoes and sweet watermelon in their summertime prime. It’s a unique combination of flavors and textures made more remarkable by the addition of crumbly feta cheese. It’s a dish that can only be created to perfection in summer. (And is somehow even more delicious when enjoyed outdoors.)
