Watermelon Feta Salad

Good morning everyone!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and hoping many of you have a short work week with July 4th coming up this Friday. 🙂

Tommy and I ran 11 miles yesterday morning and we are both still a little sore and tired from that this morning. It was a little hard to wake up… I’m hoping a Zumba class I’m taking this evening will help stretch and sooth my muscles a little bit.

Yesterday I made a delicious salad, a Watermelon Feta Salad to be exact that I wanted to share with you. Not only was it so easy to put together, the salad provided a naturally sweet, tasty, and refreshing snack throughout the day! I also think it would make a wonderful July 4th BBQ side. 🙂

I followed the original recipe to the “T” EXCEPT I didn’t add olive oil – because I realized a little too late we were out of it!

Ingredients

  • 6 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

Directions

  1. Combine watermelon, feta cheese, red onion, and mint in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the lime juice and olive oil over the watermelon mixture and toss gently to coat.
  3. Serve immediately.

Yield: 6-8 servings

Enjoy!
