A sweltering summer day is the best time to pull out this incredible 'Watermelon Salad' recipe. You may not believe that the sweet and refreshing taste of watermelon paired with salty feta cheese, cucumbers, fresh mint, and lime dressing sounds like it works, but trust us, it does. Not only is it refreshing and the perfect addition to any get-together, but it’s also so easy to make. 

A note about the ingredients: it is tempting to buy pre-crumbled feta cheese, but buying it in the block and crumbling it yourself takes almost no time — and the taste is so much better. Also, any type of cucumber works as long as you remove the seeds so the salad doesn't become too soggy, but we prefer the robust crispness of English cucumbers. Some people like to add tomatoes, red onions, and balsamic dressing to their watermelon salad, but we think the lime dressing tastes better. Last but not least, we cube our watermelon when we slice it because it is easier. But if you use a scooper, it does level up the presentation and looks very elegant.
