Ingredients

For the salad

  • 2 Cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 Cup sliced English cucumber
  • 1/2 Cup cubed feta
  • 1/2 avocado, cubed
  • 10 mint leaves, torn
  • 1/2 Cup pistachios

For the dressing

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt (not too much because feta is salty)

Directions

For the salad

Add all salad ingredients except pistachios in a large bowl.

For the dressing

In a small jar, add all dressing ingredients and shake well.

Dress salad generously with dressing.

The lime juice should keep the avocado from browning.

Toss gently.

Add pistachios right before serving so they don't get soggy.
