Watermelon Avocado Salad

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4 small bowls
Summertime means spending time with family, and not slaving over a hot stove! This recipe is not only fast and easy, but is naturally sweetened with one of my favorite summertime treats: watermelon! 

Whip up this summer salad in a hurry for barbecues, family gatherings, or as a great afternoon snack. Watermelon and cucumber are hydrating for those hot summer days, while the avocado and feta cheese add a dose of healthy fat to keep you fuller, longer. Fast, easy and healthy; what more could you ask for?
