The Best Ways To Use Watermelon This Summer.

IMG_2648.jpg

Summer is officially here. Which means so many great things. Sun, sand, ocean, friends, family, rose, the freshest fruit and so many BBQs. When faced with the challenges of BBQ spreads weekend after weekend, it is always good to have a go-to item to bring. One that you know you will always love to eat, one that you look forward to eating, one that others will love and one that will keep you on track to reaching your goals. I call this dish, the watermelon, feta salad. I am sure you have had this before, but my secret ingredient makes it the best you will ever have.

#happyslimhealthy Watermelon, Feta Salad:

1/2 seedless watermelon, cubed

1/4 cup low fat feta cheese

generous handful of mint, chopped

sea salt

3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

**juice of 1 lime** <--this changes everything.

optional: zest of half the lime

Mix all ingredients together and let them sit for at least 15 minutes before serving.

To add on to this salad you can mix in things like sweet campari tomatoes, or red onion as well!

The flavors just go so well together, the salad is hydrating, filling, and so good. Sure to be a crowd pleaser. But don't take my word for it. Try it for your 4th of July BBQs coming up!

Another one of my favorite ways to eat watermelon - grilled.

That's right, stick slices of watermelon right on the grill, and either eat just like that, or cube and mix into a salad.

Watermelon is so versatile. You can use it in a traditional caprese salad as a fun addition, you can use it in a fruit salsa, pair with yogurt and berries for a delicious dessert OR you can go to watermelon.org and find tons of delicious and creative uses for the most delicious summer fruit!
