Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad

The perfect sweet and salty summer salad

Watermelon is my favourite fruit by far—it's sweet and refreshing, especially on a hot summer's day. I've been eating a lot of watermelon over the past month or so because I've found that it's the perfect snack while I'm nursing my daughter. It's hydrating, high in fibre, and provides a healthy dose of two important antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Lycopene. Not to mention, it's the perfect way to satisfy my sweet tooth instead of going crazy on cookies and ice cream. Try pairing watermelon with vanilla yogurt, adding it to a smoothie or a fruit salad or eating it on its own. 

This delicious watermelon and feta salad is super easy to throw together and will definitely impress your family and friends:


1 medium sized watermelon (or 1/2 of a large watermelon) rind removed and cut into cubes
3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
large handful of fresh mint, rinsed and chopped
1 lime, juice of
1/2 lemon, juice of
salt and pepper to taste

  Toss the cubed watermelon into a large salad bowl and sprinkle with feta cheese and mint

  Whisk together the oil, lime and lemon juice, salt and pepper, add to salad and toss
