Watermelon Leaf Lettuce Salad with Light Feta

Labels: { , , , }

A simple watermelon salad mixed with the loose leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, and low-fat Salaskis feta in tangy balsamic vinaigrette makes a perfect light summer dinner fare. The combination rocks!
I am sending this to Side Dish Showdown: July at Cinnamon Spice&Everything Nice
