  1. I used yellow watermelon (which is the color of mango) and red and yellow tomatoes for a nice change of color. Next time I would cut back on the Olive Oil and I used lowfat feta. I can't taste the lemon zest at all so don't let that stop you if you're out. My white - Read more ...
  2. The strength of flavor of your watermelon can affect the taset greatly I'd think. Mine was not very flavorful, but this still turned out delicious.
