Watermelon Salad Recipe with Cucumber, Mint and Feta

This is a fruity salad dish I adapted from an LCBO magazine recipe many years ago.  I make it often in the summers because it’s delicious and refreshing. I grow mint in my garden (if you don’t I highly recommend it) and it grows like a weed and tastes so great in this salad (and mojitos!). If you live locally let me know and I’ll dig you some up (I have tons!). Other recipes I love can be found here and here.  watermelon salad recipe

  1. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    1. oh weird, I didn’t see a comment! Thanks for the compliment! My suggestion would be to write about what you are passionate about, your life, stories, etc because thats what people connect with! happy writing!
