    Watermelon Summer Salad is one of the most delicious salads that you can enjoy on a hot evening. It’s fresh and juicy and will cool you in no time. Do not get intimidated by the ingredients, they blend well to result in a delicacy like no other! The recipe uses watermelons, feta cheese, and cucumbers. A bit of basil, mint, and honey complement the flavor making it a light and bright dish. If you like your salads bursting out with different flavors, then this is one recipe that you will keep coming back to. Choose a ripe melon so the sweet flavor comes out a bit to tackle the acidity of lime juice.
