SIMPLE Watermelon + Cucumber + Feta Salad
Both Watermelon & Cucumbers are inexpensive and very plentiful throughout their peak season (July-August), which makes this SIMPLE 5-ingredient salad an OUTSTANDING choice throughout these Summer months.
Ahhh…the taste of Sweet Summertime!
This Salad couldn’t be simpler, so it’s the PERFECT hot weather salad to bring to all those BBQ’S!
Cucumbers are just SO darn refreshing in the Summertime! And for a very GOOD reason!
Because cucumbers are composed of about 96% water, they help to keep us hydrated!
They contain vitamin C and other antioxidants, and nutrients that can help protect our skin from sun damage.
Vitamin C boosts collagen and elastin, which helps to keep skin looking vibrant while natural acids found in the cucumbers protect our skin cells from UV radiation.
Cucumbers also have natural anti-inflammatory benefits and help to prevent water retention.
All things we’re especially seeking in the Summer!
So let’s load up on cucumbers during this glorious season of sunshine seeking!
- 6 cups watermelon, seeded and cubed
- 1 English cucumber, chopped
- 6 oz feta cheese, cubed
- a handful of chopped fresh mint leaves
- 1 fresh lime, zest and juice
- sea salt flakes and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Add your cubed watermelon into a large serving bowl along with the rest of your ingredients.
Very gently toss to combine.
Taste test, and adjust if desired.
Serve and enjoy!
