RECIPE: Watermelon, Rosemary & Feta Salad

Summer is the perfect time to give your stove a rest and relax with a fresh, easy, no-cooking-required recipe. 

This fruit salad is a great alternative to your typical salad and is a wonderful way to elevate the flavors of watermelon. It's perfect for picnics, brunch, potlucks, or as a sweet and savory snack! If you want to add some additional protein, try serving it with a Vanilla Greek yogurt.

When picking out a watermelon in the grocery store, the field spot should be more yellow. When lifting the watermelon, it should feel heavy or dense. Lastly, you can knock on the watermelon and listen for a deep hallow sound. Following these tips will lead to picking a ripe and delicious melon.

Ingredients:

• 1 watermelon, sliced

• 1 pint blueberries, washed

• ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled

• 3 T Rosemary, chopped

• 2 T Olive Oil

• Salt and pepper, to lightly season

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, blueberries, olive oil, and rosemary.

2. Lightly (almost like a garnish) salt and pepper.

3. Serve and enjoy!
