Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint Avocado and Lime

At 6:05 a.m. last Friday morning, I boarded a nonstop flight for what my 26-year-old sister described as “the straight-up, 48 hours in Vegas.” A first timer to Vegas myself, I didn’t know what to expect. I had a feeling it was going to be fun, exhausting, and that upon returning home, I’d need a big, beautiful plate of this Watermelon Feta Salad.

Simple and refreshing Watermelon Feta Salad with Avocado, Mint, Edamame, and Lime Dressing. Easy, healthy, and filling! One of the best summer recipes. Recipe at wellplated.com | @wellplated

I was almost right.

I actually needed two things: a big, beautiful plate of Watermelon Feta Salad and a 48-hour nap.
