This dish made mostly with melon and cucumbers makes it an incredibly hydrating and refreshing salad! Add in the feta, mint leaves, and fresh lime juice, and you have yourself a sweet and savory, healthy, and delicious salad!
2 cups cantaloupe melon, skin removed + cut into chunks (or spooned into balls)
2 cups cucumber, chopped into half-moons
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
15 large fresh mint leaves, torn or chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juice only (optional. The salad is delicious with or without the lime!)
Salt + pepper, to taste
Prep all ingredients and add to a large serving bowl. Toss everything together well, adjusting seasonings as desired.
Serve immediately, or chill for 30 minutes before serving!
