Summer Salad Series: Watermelon, Mint and Feta

Whew! It’s a HOT one in Charleston this summer y'all. With the sun shining bright and the heat turned up people are jumping on opportunities to cool off and stay hydrated. This is essential because we know the heat is not going


There's no reason to get heated about it though. My watermelon, mint and feta salad is proven to be my hungriest taste testers go-to salad. It is light, yet satisfying, but I hope you have toothpicks on hand! This is a good solution for putting a block of feta that hasn't been crumbled to use. You can use toothpicks to make mini watermelon, feta and mint skewers, perfect for summer soirees!
