Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad Recipe

Watermelon is one of the best summer treats. It’s flavorful, healthy, and widely available. If you’re like me, you crave a juicy watermelon on a hot summer day.

But what if I told you that there was a way to level up watermelon and make it even better? Let me introduce you to Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad. This salad is simple, easy, and, most importantly, delicious.

The best part is that this three-ingredient recipe can be made by absolutely anyone. Buy a medium-sized watermelon, some feta, and some mint, and you’re set.

The salty feta and sweet watermelon complement each other beautifully. And the mint adds a perfect hint of flavor to make this dish a summertime favorite.

If you’re intimidated by cutting watermelon, buying pre-sliced watermelon at the grocery store is perfectly fine.

I recommend using full-fat feta for this recipe. It gives the dish more flavor, and adds a richer taste to the watermelon.

This recipe is also a great excuse to grow mint in your garden. I have a large planter of mint that grows like crazy, so this recipe is a great way to use it up.

Finally, if you love sweet salads, add some balsamic glaze to this dish. It will add even more color and flavor. You could also serve the glaze on the side.
