Happy National Watermelon Day!
Its so pretty, so delicious and refreshing. A perfect way to celebrate National Watermelon Day or any day! This classic Greek inspired salad is surprisingly satisfying with my favorite flavor mix of sweet & savory. I look forward to it every summer. I use lime juice to dress this salad, rather than the traditional balsamic vinegar.
To feel like a Greek Goddess in your own kitchen, you need very few things:
- 2 cups watermelon, cubed
- 1 cup cucumber, chopped
- 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- salt & pepper
Combine the first 5 ingredients, then squeeze lime on top and season with salt & pepper. Toss and enjoy.

watermelon fun facts:
Watermelons are 91% water and a great source of vitamin C and lycopene (just like our friend, the tomato!)
