A deliciously refreshing Watermelon Salad with Cucumber and Feta, because, who said fruit is just for dessert?
I don’t think I have ever told you I love love love watermelon. It is such an amazing fruit, could you imagine the face of its discoverer? Finding that wet, vibrant and pinky-redish interior behind a hard dark green exterior… just fascinating!
It is one of my favorite fruit, it is sad I can only enjoy it in summer time, but I believe this is its charm. I miss it during winter, but when the desired for a sweet watery bite is satisfied, I am one of the happiest women in Hearth!
This is already my 3rd watermelon so far this month, and I have to say that each one was better. Looks like this year’s harvest is going to beat records… Lucky me :p
This Watermelon Salad with Cucumber and Feta is a good way to give an alternative to watermelon. It is great for bbq or as a side of a grilled fish, although I like to take it just as it is for dinner on busy weekdays or when I don’t feel very hungry.
I would love to see your creations! Tag a photo #healthyforkful on Instagram 🙂
