Fourth of July is right around the corner and summer weather is heating up! What better way to celebrate outdoors than with a fresh salad to keep you cool? Check out this sweet and juicy cilantro, lime + watermelon salad topped with feta!
1 small watermelon from the garden, diced
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro from the garden, chopped
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper
Feta cheese, crumbled
To get rid of some of the onion’s strong flavor, you can soak it in cold water for about 5 minutes, then drain + pat dry. Mix the oil, lime juice, salt + pepper in a mason jar, shake well + season to taste. Add the fresh watermelon to your favorite salad bowl, top with crumbled feta, and garnish with red onion + fresh cilantro from the garden. Drizzle on the lime dressing + enjoy!
