Nothing defines Summer like Watermelon! Kick off the season with this fresh and delicious Watermelon & Feta Salad!
For this recipe, you'll need cubed watermelon, sliced cucumbers, crumbled feta cheese and mint leaves. A simple lime dressing tops the salad and everything is tossed together for a fresh and colorful dish! The sweet watermelon with the salty feta is a flavor pairing that may sound unconventional but is truly amazing!
TIPS: Cut watermelon into chunks for ease. Buy blocked feta vs. crumbled for more flavor. Add the mint at the very last moment for uber-freshness.
