Watermelon and Goat Cheese Salad

In Turkey, this popular salad is often made with Tulum cheese, a ubiquitous goat-and-lamb's-milk cheese. Defne Koryurek opts to make her version using creamy fresh goat cheese sprinkled with crunchy little nigella seeds (also called black onion seeds), which add a nutty, peppery flavor.
