Recipe- Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

Our recipe this week is the Watermelon, Feta and Mint Salad! This is a wonderful side to enjoy with the family this weekend. Aside the major ingredients, you shouldn’t have this salad without your tangy lemon zest flavor which goes a long way to give the watermelon an aromatic flavor. Crumbling the cheese rather than tossing it, gives it an interestingly new texture. Enjoy this healthy recipe with your family this weekend!
