- 2 cups cubed Watermelon
- 1 cup thickly sliced Cucumbers
- ¼ cup crumbled Feta Cheese
- Juice of ½ a lemon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- A generous pinch of Sea Salt
- Freshly Cracked Pepper
- 1 teaspoons dried mint
- Chopped Fresh Mint for garnish (optional)
In a bowl put in your watermelon, cucumbers, and feta and gently mix together.
Pull out a jar and add lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and dried mint. Seal the jar with the lid and shake vigorously until dressing emulsifies. It should look a little thicker and slightly cloudy.
Drizzle dressing onto salad, toss, and top with fresh mint.
