Watermelon Feta Mint Mojito Salad

I’ve been seeing a lot of watermelon food posts now as summer is in full swing 😋I’ve also been enjoying some mint mojitos from my abundance of mint in the garden; and as a cheese lover, mix that into a recipe whenever possible. Here is my version of a *Watermelon Feta Mint Mojito Salad including a fav of mine, pine nuts! The lime adds just the right amount of zest! This salad was devoured by everyone including the kids, who couldn’t get enough…🍉🌿
