It seems like a weird combination but you’ll be amazed. Start with crisp watermelon pieces. Add a couple of slices of cooked bacon crumbled up into small pieces. Sprinkle a little feta and fresh mint over the top, and it’s done! This summer salad is refreshing, flavorful and beautiful to look at. Bring it to your next gathering and friends will be begging for the recipe.
