I admit, I was very skeptical about feta and watermelon together, but after my first attempt at this Watermelon Feta Salad Recipe, my fears were diminished. The cold, fresh, sweet watermelon strikes a perfect balance with the salty feta. Them when I combined it all with fresh mint, and my AMAZING honey and lime juice dressing, I was in love. My husband and I couldn’t put our forks down! It is so light and refreshing and makes a perfect Weight Watchers Summer Salad Recipe that can be prepared quickly and easily. I have since made this a few more times recently because I simply cannot get enough of it. Each serving is just 2 Points, and it makes an excellent side dish to your favorite main course. I highly recommend giving this one a try ASAP.
