A cool and refreshing salad recipe, perfect for summer. Not only delicious, but the salad stars – watermelon and cucumber – are two extremely hydrating foods. Washing melons is often overlooked as we do not eat the rind, but keep in mind, that as you slice through the melon, you introduce contaminants from the surface of the melon, to the edible flesh inside.
15 cups cubed watermelon
3 cups cubed English cucumber
1 -8oz pkg feta cheese
3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
freshly ground pepper to taste
Gently combine the watermelon, cucumber, feta cheese, and mint in a large bowl. Season with black pepper. Pour lime juice over melon mixture and toss just before serving.
