Let’s start the sunny holiday-weekend off right with some delicious watermelon recipes! Starting with this refreshing, yummy and healthy salad.

During the summer, chilled and sliced watermelon is one of my favorite snacks. I love that you can transform this fruit to a nice lunch or starter with just two more ingredients. The citrus dressing brings out the flavor of the watermelon and the feta adds a touch of saltiness and creaminess to it. The mint adds a perfectly refreshing touch to it. Don’t miss out on this dish on your next garden party, I’m sure your guests will appreciate this salad on a hot summer day.
