July 24, 2020 | by Fortius Sport & Health

Did you know watermelon can be a great way to help meet your daily hydration needs?

This is a refreshing salad to serve at family BBQs this summer, or a lunch option paired with a source of protein.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Serves 4

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 cups cubed, seedless watermelon
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 1 cup crumbled, low-fat feta
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped mint
  • 1 lime, cut into four slices *optional

Note: For a dairy free option try swapping out feta for vegan feta, or mixed it up by adding avocado in place of feta.

  1. In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, white wine vinegar and salt to make the dressing.
  2. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, cucumber, feta, red onion and mint.
  3. Pour over dressing and toss. Serve with a lime wedge.
