Switching gears a bit…do you need a delicious refreshing post run/workout snack to nibble on by the pool? Try my rendition of this watermelon mint feta salad! And enjoy.

-1 medium watermelon, freshly chopped up
-1 cup of crumbled feta cheese
-2 lemons, juiced
-Lemon zest
-A drizzle or two of extra virgin olive oil
-1 cup of freshly chopped mint leaves
-Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Add chopped watermelon to a glass bowl. Watermelon can be chilled or chilled after preparing this dish. Drizzle olive oil, add feta cheese and salt/pepper to taste. Add lemon juice and mix altogether thoroughly until evenly distributed. Sprinkle mint leaves on top, extra feta if you have it and lemon zest on top (I like to be generous as I like the taste of zest but add as much or as little as you desire). Chill in refrigerator for 5-10 minutes, then serve! Perfect poolside snack.
