Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad


So let’s talk about the fact that I’m giving up white sugar….or at least moving toward that goal. I am in my second week and I promise my sweet tooth has been taunting me like a relentless bully. The struggles eliminating the hidden sugars are nothing in comparison to those Oreos in there that just keep calling my name.

See I’m not stripping the whole family….just yet. I’m trying to fine tune this new lifestyle before I thrust them into it. So the struggle has been how to curb and satisfy my sweet tooth.

*insert watermelon*

Love watermelon. L O V E.

I love salty stuff as well, stripped myself of that about a year ago so I thought what better than a watermelon, cucumber and feta salad. Sweet, salty and refreshing.

This salad has just the right amount of all natural sweetness and saltiness.

Super easy to make with just cubed watermelon and feta cheese ( or you could use crumbles) and cucumber. I’m not a huge fan of cucumber so I made sure to slice thinly and drizzled balsamic vinaigrette over the top.

    I first tasted this at a parent meeting at my kids’ school. My first thought was WTH kind of combo is that? But you know me, I’d try any type of food once — and it was DELICIOUS! I got a second helping with no shame since the other parents were kinda thrown off by the ingredients. My kids loved it too. It’s a perfect balance of ingredients.
