Watermelon Feta Salad
Watermelon + cucumbers is one of the most refreshing combos of all time. Throw in some mint, red onion, and feta and toss it all with a very simple vinaigrette (just olive oil + red wine vinegar), and you’ve got yourself a mean summer salad. It’s the perfect summer side!
Tips: We love the saltiness and crumbliness of feta, but if you’re not a fan, fresh mozzarella balls or goat cheese would work, too. To take some of the bite out of red onions, soak the slices in water for about 15 minutes.
1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
