Watermelon and cucumber feta salad is one of the most refreshing salads of all time. This is perfect for summer. This is really very simple salad with a simple vinaigrette. Sometimes eating right is hard. It has to be full of all nutrients and definitely tasty to satisfy your taste buds. In a healthy and balanced meal, you have to have a variety of food, cut back on salt, reduce certain fats and oil, limit sugar intake, etc. Keeping all in mind, created this lunch meal. :) Feta is a little salty, so you can cut back on raw salt here. Also using extra virgin olive oil for good fat. No added sugar, I love the natural sweetness of the watermelon. This tasty refreshing salad will satisfy our mouth at the same time it's full of nutrients.
