Post divider

Summertime is potluck season and this Watermelon Feta Salad is super easy and sure to make you the star of your next backyard BBQ. Fresh, bright, salty, with incredible texture, this dish is the kind of thing you can eat over and over and not get tired of. The interesting flavour combination makes it feel exotic and different, but it is made up of everyday ingredients that basically everyone loves. A safe bet for a crowd!

I love the contrast in temperatures and textures of this dish. Perfect accompaniment for grilled chicken, pork kabobs, or fish.

You are 100% going to want to make this!
