Video Recipe:

I love good fruity and veggie summer salads. Because summer is a time when all vegetables and fruits are at their peak. Sweet, juicy watermelon, creamy, soft feta cheese, aromatic mint leaves, and antioxidant-rich blueberries are the showcases of this salad. The feta cheese gives this salad a satisfying Greek Salad flavor and adds the salty notes so you hardly have to add any salt (or you can skip the salt. The feta cheese takes it over the top, so don’t skip it!

What is Feta Cheese?

Feta cheese is a soft, white-colored cheese made from the milk of sheep and goats. It’s known for its rich aroma and slightly sour taste. It is an excellent source of nutrients like calcium and protein, and vitamins. Feta is lower in fat than many other kinds of cheese, however, and is considered a reasonable option to eat in moderation. It is made from sheep and goat's milk, and that is why it’s also easier to digest. Feta cheese adds a hefty dose of protein and the protein makes a Greek feta salad equally fantastic as an easy side salad or a filling and healthy meatless meal! Do give it a try!
