eats // Watermelon, Avocado & Mint Salad with Feta Cheese


I found this wonderfully refreshing watermelon (paleo) salad on pinterest.  It really is a summer must for any gathering, it's so easy to throw together and the scent of mint that lingers in your kitchen is just delightful. Really is there anything more prefect then cold watermelon and mint on a hot summer day?!
