Watermelon + Feta Salad

I know that we've officially associated all references of watermelon with Queen B, but here to share the stage is a quick week-day pick-me-up to get your savor buds going this week. YWF recipe picks are about keeping it simple.

I'm not going to lie, the thought of watermelon + feta + mint + onion didn't really make sense to me at first, but boy did it ever upon first taste. I snagged a nice size melon from our garden, sprigs of mint, and got to work on this really quick and easy salad. It was a big hit with our grilled chicken dinner this week + I think you'll enjoy it as well. Be sure to use good olive oil + fresh mint + cracked pepper if you can. I found it to be a strong contender in this dish. Also- I think it should be eaten the day of due to the water in the melon, so if you want to make this for a BBQ, bring your ingredients pre-made and just toss in a bowl. The closer you can make this to serving, the better. Let me know how this works out for you!
