Red, white + watermelon: Cilantro, lime, watermelon + feta salad recipe

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!

You’ll need:

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 make:

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!
