Awesome Summer Salad
When it’s hot out there, you want to eat food that is refreshing. Well, try this one out. It is tasty and refreshing and easy to make.
Watermelon Cucumber Salad
One 7-8lb. seedless watermelon, chilled
1 large cucumber
1/2 cup olive oil
3 limes or lemons or a combination of limes and lemons juiced
1 cup of fresh chopped mint leaves
11/2 cups crumbled or cubed feta cheese (do not use goat cheese in this recipe, it just waters down to nothing)
11/2 tsp. salt
Cube the watermelon and place in a large bowl. Drain as much of the liquid from the watermelon as you can. Slice the cucumber in half long ways and then slice it to your preferred thickness. Add feta, olive oil, lemons/limes, mint leaves and salt. Mix well and keep in refrigerator until it is ready to serve. If you have left overs, you might want to drain it the next day and maybe add a bit more lemon/lime, olive oil and salt before eating it. I thought it was great the next day as well, but it did get watered down some.
This makes a great before or after a meal salad or even on its own. It is the perfect combination of sweet, savory and sour.

She found a deep interest in the way the body and mind worked when her disabled sister was hospitalized and near death. When one the doctors told Pia that she should become a doctor, it really got her thinking. She knew the traditional way was not for her but looked for a way she could use her skills to help others the way she was able to help her sister.
