A Picnic Perfect Summer Salad

A Picnic Perfect Summer Salad

As summer heats up, you might be craving time away from a hot kitchen, so you can save sweating for other activities: bike riding, playing with your kids or grandkids, or enjoying live music outdoors. 

While you ditch your long sleeves, see more sun, and perhaps increase your physical activity, staying hydrated is essential for those action-packed days. What better way to do it than with a refreshing nutrient-dense salad that’s simple yet satisfying? 

Watermelon is often a summer favorite thanks to its high water content. Feta delivers a creamy yet light flavor and texture. And, what’s cooler than a crunchy cucumber?

Summer is about opening up schedules, relaxing into a slower pace of life, and enjoying more daylight. That flexibility can carry over to meals, too. After all, who says salads have to be all green all the time?  

Give this watermelon, feta, and cucumber salad a try if the mood strikes. 

A chef’s kiss doesn’t have to hibernate this time of year.
