This summer classic is to die for. A classic that you most likely already tried but why should you. Just make this great Watermelon side salad with feta cheese and mint. Even if you’ve had it many times you won’t regret it.
Like I said this Watermelon side salad with feta cheese and mint is a classic. Google it and you’ll find thousand of images that kind of looks like the ones here. The reason why is because this is just so simple and delicious.
The salad comes with only three ingredients, at least if you don’t count salt, pepper and olive oil. All you have to do is peel and chop up some watermelon. Buy crumbed feta cheese and some fresh mint. Add those, drizzle with some oil, a twist of black pepper and you are done.
If you happen to have never tried this salad before I will, of course, give you a detailed recipe and wish you the best of luck, not that you need it. This is just too good and easy to make to mess up. Good luck and enjoy!
