This past Monday was National Watermelon Day, and you might be asking yourself why a fruit deserves it’s very own day of recognition. While watermelon is almost entirely made of water (about 92%), it is also full of Vitamin A, B6 and C, not to mention antioxidants and amino acids. That’s something to celebrate! To keep in line with the watermelon celebration, this recipe goes beyond eating a slice on a hot day. Watermelon receives a new look and taste when paired with feta and balsamic vinegar for a lovely salad. Serve as a side to your latest grilled masterpiece or as an appetizer at your summer gathering. It’s sure to be a hit!
