  • 7-8 cups fresh seedless watermelon cut into ¾ inch cubes.

Honey Lime Dressing

  1. In a large serving bowl, combine the cubed watermelon, blueberries, mint, basil, and 

¾ cup of the crumbled feta. 

  1. Toss with the honey lime dressing until evenly distributed.
  2. Top with the remaining ¼ cup feta and garnish with more mint and basil leaves (if desired). 
  3. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Do you know how to select a sweet watermelon? Here are 5 tips from Tania:

  1. A watermelon should feel heavy. That means it’s juicy!
  2. The rind on the watermelon should be firm and dull, rather than shiny or too smooth. 
  3. Look for a yellow “field spot,” where the melon rested on the ground while growing.
  4. Avoid watermelons with white or green field spots because they’re not ripe.
  5. Tap on the watermelon. If you hear a deep, hollow sound, it’s ripe!
