Watermelon Feta Salad

As the weather changes and temperature begins to rise, so do our taste buds crave an assortment of refreshing fruits. Watermelon is tasty on its own, but when combined with Feta cheese makes a scrumptious salad. 

This Mediterranean salad is tasty and can easily be prepared as a side dish with your favourite meal. The combination of sweet and sour ingredients is rich and flavourful, and bursting with subtle flavours of salty crumbled feta cheese, blends of fresh mint, and other delicious savoury ingredients. 

Additionally, as an option, you can get creative with the watermelon feta salad, by adding cucumber, extra virgin olive oil, basil (which can be substituted for mint), kosher salt, and red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar.
