Anyone who knows me well, knows I kind of have a thing for Feta cheese. It is creamy and salty and pefectly delightful on so many different things especially salads.

I also have a thing for watermelon and mint. So why not combine all those favorites into one fun salad?

This was really simple and easy to make. It literally took just scant minutes to put together and turned out so bright and beautiful!



Mix up your dressing. I did not have rice vinegar and substituted what I had on hand - and it worked fine.


Cut your mint into little ribbons.


Sorry, I skipped a few steps in the photo process. Mix the mint and melon with the dressing then top with cheese and sprinkle on just a dash of seasoning. Garnish with mint and you are ready to enjoy!
