Watermelon Feta Salad with Spicy Vinaigrette

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 do 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!
