Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon is considered by many to be the super fruit of summer. It is made up of 92% water and the remaining 8% consists of a variety of nutrients like vitamins and minerals. With the heat and humidity in South Carolina, that hydration factor is key! Still not convinced? Watermelon has been proven to reduce the risk of cancer, is good for your immune system, and is certified by the American Heart Association as a heart healthy food.
