Cucumber – Melon Salad with Feta

Greens and Melon salad is 10 – minute recipe which is utterly delicious and plain simple. It looks so beautiful and calls summer! I know we are still in early Feb, but in Texas, we are having some warm sun out in the afternoon, and feels like summer is right around the corner. Since then I have been craving for juicy, refreshing salad for lunch. This cucumber – Melon salad totally fit the bill.

We got a Jumbo sized Honeydew from grocery store and lots of fresh cucumbers, used them to make this greens salad in a bed of fresh baby kale!

I used chili-lime seasoning(got them from Trader Joe’s), and chia seeds to top the greens salad.
