It's the last day of #Brunchweek 2016! Head on over to my first post and read through, and don't forget to enter the contest. We have so many awesome prizes up for grabs from our sponsors! And today is the last day to enter!

This salad is a quick, yet tasty side for any brunch table.

Watermelon and feta may seem like a weird combo but TRUST ME, they're a match made in heaven. A dash of Neilsen-Massey orange extract makes it even better.

The noodling or "zoodling" of the cucumbers is optional, but really fun.
