Recovery Day – Watermelon Salad

With summer just around the corner, you can’t help but dread that scorching heat. While the summer typically means that we will drink a lot of water, eat a lot of fresh fruit, and chill out by the pool, sometimes we can still find it hard to cool down.

Watermelon salad is one of the few summer eats that made its break from a forgotten Pinterest board. With it’s popularity rising, why not give it a go? While the flavor combination may sound strange, trust us on this one–watermelon, mint, lime, and feta cheese are actually a match made in heaven.

Take a shot at it!
