  4. I can't believe you know this recipe! I am Greek and we make this salad at home very often in August. What's different about our family recipe is that we use wild oregano ( very fragrant )instead of watercress and we don't have to add any salt because good feta cheese is very salty. Also, we cut the whole watermelon in half and remove the fruit's flesh very carefully with a spoon or a knife , so that we can use the hollow watermelon halves as salad bowls. Sometimes, we even top the salad off with a few drops of ouzo.
