How To Make Watermelon and Feta Salad
We’re completely in love and totally on board with the savory watermelon trend. Anyway we can incorporate more watermelon into our diets, we’re in! Like this watermelon and feta salad that balances the sweet and savory flavors like a champ. By cutting the watermelon into small, tomato-like cubes and then topping it with a lemon yogurt dressing, some more chopped summer veggies, mint and feta, this salad is a total knockout. Just be sure to make enough of this one because it can disappear faster than a snowman on a hot, summer day.
This bright, healthy and gourmet-looking salad is the perfect side for your summer gatherings–maybe even an upcoming tailgate!
