Watermelon and Watercress Salad with Lime Vinaigrette

Summer is approaching and so are the bounty of fruits that bless us with their sweet presence when the weather gets warm. There is nothing like a cool, crisp watermelon to carry you through the stagnant heat. Watercress is an underrated green that is packed with vitamin A & C. Its slightly bitter taste complements the sweetness of the watermelon and saltiness of the feta. This salad is super healthy and versatile. Eat it as a meal, after a meal or before a meal. Or…just because it’s so good.
