Summer is salad season and I can’t think of any salad that characterizes everything I love about summer more than this Watermelon, Mint and Cucumber Salad. Cool, crisp with a hit of briny salt from fresh feta cheese, this salad is a natural partner for almost anything that comes off the grill – like this Yogurt, Lemon and Mint Grilled Chicken.
I first came across this idea when I was trying to put together a menu for a summer get together. Since we were flying in the day of the party, I needed dishes that I could shop for and prep in the afternoon. Needless to say, it was hot! I knew I wanted dishes that were refreshing and light that would also work with grilled meat, fish and vegetables. This Watermelon, Mint and Cucumber Salad fit the bill and was a huge hit at the party. Since then, it’s become a summer staple in my house!
