Cucumber-Melon & Feta Salad

Chef Ilona Daniel shares with you her fresh take for this unexpected salad!

Are you craving fresh and juicy salads, but are looking for something off the beaten track? My cucumber-melon salad has not one lettuce leaf in the mix, but rather it’s packed with 3 different melons, cucumber, and feta cheese. Think of this salad as the cousin of the Greek chopped salad. This tastes great on its own, or you can serve it on the side with your favourite grilled meats.
