Watermelon Salad with Mint Pesto

We love eating fruit just the way it is! It’s so flavorful and doesn’t need anything. However, it’s fun to transform their naturally sweet flavors by adding something slightly salty to the mix. We choose feta because of it’s mild flavor and crumbly texture. If you make the mint pesto without the feta, it can be a minty dressing – just serve the feta on the side.
