Watermelon Feta and Mint Salad

Watermelon is one of the fruit with highest water content;that is why it’s very good for hydration. This watermelon feta mint salad is so fresh and delicious and perfect for hot summer days. You can also serve this salad as a side dish with BBQ’d or grilled food.

I bought this watermelon 2-3 days back and it was too big to eat plain. So I thought of making something really nice as I want to eat it fresh too. Making fruit salad was also an option but that is too boring and sweet as a lunch. So I made this watermelon feta mint salad which is a combination of sweet, salty and tart flavors. watermelon feta salad

 

I have also added some chopped olives, lemon juice, and red onions to make this “Greek style” salad; which has not only added twist but also enhanced the flavor and  taste of this salad at the same time. Also, the addition of spices makes it more satisfying and refreshing. So try this amazing and fresh watermelon feta mint salad as fresh watermelon is not going to be available in the market for too long.watermelon feta mint salad
