Watermelon & Feta Salad with Mint

Week 2 of Cooking carnival 2016, begins from today. My menu for this week is Salads.  yeah, i can hear many murmur, boring!!!  Nope, salads can be made very interesting, full of flavors and spices.  For the past 1 year, me and husband try to include lot of salads in our daily meal. Mostly our dinner was either a bowl of filling soup or salad with balanced ingredients.
I dont use fancy sauces to spice up my salad, our humble lemon, mint, parsley, pepper, ginger can be jazzed up together for a yummy and colorful bowl. So, this 6 days, i will try to jazz up this place with some colorful salads, that fills the eyes and also your taste-buds. 

Today, i present you a very simple, Watermelon salad, dressed with feta and mint. This beauty, on plate will make your guests go ga-ga about you and your party, catching all the attention. 

Simple flavors, but when all combined together, they give you such a happy feeling in your mouth that totally drenches the whole inner sense.  Good food, great philosophy!
