Melon Mint Salad

It's officially summer which means we have cantaloupe, watermelon, and honeydew out on the floor! This salad features sweet cantaloupe paired with cucumber & tomato, tossed in a simple dressing and balanced out by savory feta cheese. It is a perfect appetizer for a barbeque or a lovely dinner on the patio.
