Watermelon & Feta Salad with Meyer Lemon & Honey Vinaigrette

This salad is so simple to make, but it is the presentation that makes it special. This crunchy, refreshing, sweet-meets-sour treat is the perfect salad for the summer.

Makes 4 small salads or two large.

Meyer lemon dressing:
1 shallot (minced)
a few glugs of olive oil
a nice squeeze of honey
the juice from 1 meyer lemon
S & P
Whisk all ingredients in a large bowl.

For the salad:
1/2 seedless watermelon (scooped into balls with a melon baller)
4 slices of feta cheese
8 ribs of romaine
S & P

Toss romaine with the dressing and place onto a small plate. Fill one rib with melon balls and place feta over the other. Drizzle with some of the dressing that is left in the bottom of the bowl. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
