1 small honeydew melon, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes, optional

1 (8-ounce) block feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes or coarsely crumbled

1 tablespoon honey, such as buckwheat

1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

1 lime, juiced

1/2 teaspoon sumac, for sprinkling, see Cook's Note*

Cook’s Note

*Sumac is a pretty pinkish-red powder whose tart, sour character is treasured in Middle Eastern cooking. It's made from the berry of a bush that grows wild in the region. You can find it at better supermarkets, Indian and Middle Eastern markets, and online.
