Mmm, salty feta and juicy, sweet watermelon—there’s a good chance you’re already a fan of this scrumptious summer food marriage. Here, we take it to another level by adding a tangy dressing of lime juice, agave nectar, olive oil, and red onion. Threaded onto skewers with crunchy cucumber, the combo makes a perfect pairing for grilled chicken, shrimp, or fish.
