Today’s Simple Sunday post features this Mint Feta Lime Melon Salad Recipe which is beyond easy and quick to prep. This juicy fruit salad is the perfect sweet and savory starter for any gathering.
This easy summer salad is my new favorite go-to for cookouts and summer parties. I kept seeing those ‘melon salads’ with the perfectly circular melon balls that someone meticulously scooped out and knew there had to be an easier way. So instead of pulling out the melon ball tool and setting in for an hour of prepping, I just cut my melons into slices and laid them in a line on a serving tray. I personally think the presentation is just as stunning and it saved me so much time.
The salad is topped with salty feta, fresh mint, a hint of lime, and crunchy sesame seeds. I love the way the black sesame seeds look but you could just use regular ones if that is what you have on hand. I also topped mine with a few fresh edible flowers from the garden but that is completely for presentation and not necessary unless you already have some on hand (like I did).
