I have been craving watermelon like mad. It is all I want to eat. Josh is constantly telling me I can’t live on watermelon alone. I know he is right, so I try to eat other foods to make him and the baby happy. I am not giving up my watermelon though. I am just finding creative ways to eat it. I recently made Watermelon Feta Guacamole for an afternoon snack and I dominated the bowl! I let Josh have a few bites, but he knows to get out of my way when watermelon is involved. Plus, he was happy I branched out from my regular watermelon routine.

When I was in Austin, Texas last week I had Watermelon Feta Guacamole at La Condesa, a trendy Mexican restaurant. I knew I had to recreate it at home after one bite.


We always have a watermelon in our fridge. If we don’t, I go into major panic mode. So luckily, when I got home from Austin there was a ripe watermelon waiting for me. I made Watermelon Feta Guacamole the day after I got back from my trip. I couldn’t wait, I had to try it!


The ingredients are fresh and simple: avocado, watermelon, feta cheese, jalapeño, cilantro, lime, and red onion. Combine everything in a bowl, add a little salt and pepper, and you are good to go!

  12. LE Wilson — June 27, 2014 @ 8:55 am

    I love the combo of feta and watermelon and I love guacamole, but I’ll admit I’m a wee bit timid about combining them. Still, it might become my summer watermelon go-to dish. :)

    This looks so fresh and tasty! What a fun combo!

  34. Rachel — June 28, 2014 @ 2:42 pm

    So good. I’ve had salads with these ingredients, but they’re so great in Guac form. I made the basic Guac ahead of time adding a little cumin and extra cilantro and soaked my cubes watermelon in a little tequila and salt before tossing them and the feta in at the end. Definitely something easy and different to bring to summer cookouts.

  35. Leela — June 28, 2014 @ 4:24 pm

    Fried cheese sticks.

  36. Gaby — June 28, 2014 @ 5:00 pm

  38. Carol at Wild Goose Tea — June 29, 2014 @ 3:09 pm

    When I read the title of the post—-I thought, “What?” Pretty nifty idea. Puts a summer spin on an old favorite. Also lightens it up too. I like the look of it also.

  39. Jennay — June 29, 2014 @ 10:17 pm

    My favorite summer is fresh salsa from my home grown tomatoes! I can’t wait to try this recipe! Looks delicious! =)

  40. Stephanie Phelps — June 30, 2014 @ 6:30 am
