Looking for a super fast, super delish summer salad? This is it! It isn’t new, and I didn’t originally create it, but I put my own spin on it with the addition of the mint and extra pepper.

One of the keys to this salad is to spend the money on a REALLY GOOD block of feta cheese. It will make a difference.

Fresh, sweet, creamy, crunchy and a good dash of spice — this is your new go-to salad!

Happy Healthy Tip: Watermelon is like a tomato in that it’s loaded with lycopene, which has great anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits!
