A sweet watermelon is such a delicious summertime treat! I could eat it every day! This is a light and unique way to spotlight it as a salad on its own, or a delicious side dish! The sweet melon and salty feta are a match made in heaven!
Here‘s what you need:
3 cups watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 T olive oil
1T white wine vinegar
