Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Prepare this cool, refreshing salad on a hot summer day and give yourself a juicy pick-me-up at lunchtime. This watermelon salad has only four other ingredients: cucumbers, fresh mint, feta cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette. See why we call it "refreshing"?

Notes

Purchasing Cucumbers:
Look for cucumbers that are dark green and firm; small bumps on the skin are normal.

Note:
Instead of buying a whole watermelon to get the 3 cups chunks needed to prepare this recipe, you can purchase either a miniature watermelon or pre-cut watermelon pieces from your supermarket.

Directions

Combine ingredients. Serve cold.
