Watermelon, Feta & Mint

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.

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