This light and refreshing salad is the perfect way to cool down this summer. And at 91 calories per serving, you can afford to go for seconds (or thirds)! Some quick tips for preparing this recipe:
- Do not mix this salad prior to serving. Instead, build the salad per serving when you're ready to serve, otherwise the feta will break down.
- When you're ready to serve, mix it up using a melon baller. You could also use the mellon baller to cut the watermelon for a fun way to serve to the kids!
