Need a refreshing side/salad for summer?  Meet your next summer favorite!  Fresh Mint Watermelon and Feta Salad!  This is such a simple salad to throw together and you will be hard-pressed to not eat the entire salad in one sitting!  This salad is the perfect balance to serve with BBQ or as a poolside snack.  The sweetness of the watermelon is enhanced by the saltiness of the feta cheese.  The dressing is very simple, only honey, fresh lime juice, and lime zest.  I always suggest using fresh ingredients whenever possible.  To put a twist on this, leave out the feta cheese, grab a cup of the watermelon tossed with the dressing, place it into a blender with 1 cup of ice, and make an out-of-this-world frozen watermelon slushie.


6 cups of cubed seedless watermelon

Zest and juice of 3 limes

3 tablespoons of honey

6 min leaves minced

1/2 cup of feta cheese crumbles

Combine honey, lime juice, and lime zest.  Pour dressing over watermelon and lightly mix in mint and feta cheese.  Do not make this salad too far in advance.  You can mix the watermelon and dressing as early as 1 hour you intend to eat it and toss with the mint and feta cheese right before serving.
