Shrimp, Watermelon, and Feta Salad

IMG_3090
Over here on the Connecticut shoreline, the humidity has been peak. I’m talking weather so uncomfortable that you pretty much lose 5 pounds of water weight walking to your car…woof! Unfortuneatly for me, my breezy beach time is limited thanks to some dumb thing called work. With sticky air and smoldering temperatures, the last thing I crave is a hot dinner, let alone having to turn on my oven (or should I call it my own personal heater?) This yummy recipe requires the most minimal cooking and promises a meal that will both refresh and rehydrate from this uncomfortable beautiful summer weather!
