It is officially summer! I just LOVE this time of year, not because of the heat and weather but because of the amazing produce available at a really good price. The farmer’s market opened a few weeks ago in Salt Lake City and it did not disappoint, it was actually more like a small fair, with a lot of food, and a lot of arts and crafts. They even had treats for my dog Reno!
This salad is truly the perfect summer salad. The flavors are a little unusual, I first tried a salad like this from a restaurant I worked in and I absolutely loved it. You get a bit of sweetness from the watermelon, saltines from the feta and the pop of mint brings everything together and makes it very refreshing!
- 1/2 watermelon
- 1/4 cup feta
- 1/4 cup mint leaves
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Allow the flavors to marinade for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serves 4
