Watermelon, with its delightful sweetness and juiciness, undoubtedly earns the title of the summer fruit MVP.
While it's undeniably refreshing when enjoyed alone, when combined with cucumbers, mint, red onion, and tangy feta, and dressed with a straightforward vinaigrette consisting of olive oil and red wine vinegar, it transforms into a sensational summer salad.
This creation strikes a flawless harmony between the sweet and salty tastes, making it an ideal accompaniment to any summer dish, or even as a standalone delight straight from the bowl—rest assured, no judgment here.
