Mouth-friendly recipe: Watermelon, feta and mint salad

Watermelon is a summertime staple, but did you know it's good for your teeth, too?

Mix up this refreshing watermelon recipe for your sunny-day picnics.


6 cups cubed watermelon

3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
