Tips and tricks
Mint will oxidize once cut, so it’s best to serve quickly after all ingredients are mixed. If your mint does start to oxidize, add some more fresh mint on top for contrasting colors!
Taste your salad before serving and adjust the ingredients to your liking.
Don’t like feta? Try using fresh mozzarella balls or goat cheese.
How to pick a ripe and sweet watermelon
one: give it a knock and listen for a hollow sound
two: feel for little bumps on the watermelon, this means it will be sweet!
three: look for a yellow spot, this is where the melons rested and are likely to be ripe! I would always avoid the yellow spot because I thought they were ugly, but it’s actually exactly what you should be looking for!
