Watermelon feta salad is a delicious, low cholesterol food

Cool off in summers with watermelon feta salad. It is delicious and low cholesterol.

No Summer is complete without a nice juicy piece of watermelon. It is not surprising that watermelon is composed of about 90% water, creating the crisp texture with every bite. Yes, watermelon is the perfect summer treat to quench our thirst on hot days and satisfy our sweet tooth.

Watermelon also gives you a nutritious bang for your bite—it contains a nice amount of vitamin A, vitamin C, and the nutrient lycopene, which gives watermelon its red pigment and decreases inflammation. 1 cup of watermelon yields a mere 46 calories and counts as 1 serving of the recommended 2 servings of fruit per day.

As much as watermelon tastes amazing by itself, it also adds the perfect amount of sweetness, color, and texture to a salad. In fact, watermelon and feta is a match made in heaven with a flavorful sweet and salty combination.
