Cucumber Honeydew Salad with Feta Cheese on

The 4th of July is tomorrow and I am ready to party! Katy Perry’s “Baby You’re a Firework” has been in my head all week! Let’s get these fireworks started already:)

What are your holiday plans? We are having friends over for a BBQ! Everyone is bringing a dish to share, so we don’t have to make the entire spread. I appreciate the help and can’t wait to taste everyone’s dishes, but now I have to carefully decide what to make. It’s so hard to narrow it down to just a few recipes. We are for sure making Roasted Corn & Red Pepper Guacamole and this Cucumber Honeydew Salad with Feta.

We recently made this recipe for Better Homes and Gardens blog, Delish Dish.


Honeydew melon is a summer gem and I love finding new ways to use it. This salad has honeydew melon, cucumber, red onion, dill, feta cheese, and a light lemon dressing. It’s simple, refreshing and perfect for summertime.

Add this Cucumber Honeydew Salad with Feta to your 4th of July menu!

  1. Happy 4th of July! I’m judging an annual pie contest for my old neighborhood association. It’s one of the oldest associations in the city and this will be my 2nd time judging. I promised to take a side dish. This salad just may fit the bill!

  2. I faithfully read your blog, but am NOT interested in signing up for BGH stuff, anyway to get this recipe from you?

    1. You don’t have to sign up for anything. The recipe is over at BHG for free! We did a special guest post for them. Just click on the link to see the post and recipe!

  3. I too would like to give this recipe a try without signing up with BHG. Any possibility of sharing on your site? Thanks for the summer inspiration!

    1. You don’t have to sign up for anything. The recipe is over at BHG for free! We did a special guest post for them. Just click on the link to see the post and recipe! Sorry for the confusion!

  4. This is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! That green color is perfect πŸ™‚ WE are having some family over to grill and swim, then headed downtown to watch the fireworks. It’ll be Lucy’s first…hope she likes them!!

  5. We’re doing a similar potluck. I can’t wait! I’m making black bean burgers, cookies & salad. This looks so delicious. Nothing like a good honeydew

  6. I agree with the other posters above…I love your blog. You can see the blog post at BHG but in order to get the recipe you have to click a new link and sign up… πŸ™

    1. I am so sorry! We had no idea you would be asked to sign up for anything. We emailed BHG to see if we can get it changed. Thanks for your patience!

  7. I am not a big fan of cucumber. Maybe I need to eat some organic, full-flavored ones. Even though, this recipe looks so refreshing! Perfect for summertime. I may need to give cucumbers a second chance πŸ˜‰

  8. I see pics of your beautiful recipes in my inbox, but, it’s really hit and miss to find the actual recipe. I click on all the hotlinks, and if I find the right one that leads to the recipe, it’s quite by accident. lol I even type in the name of the recipe in the search box. So, how exactly to I find your yummy recipes? Help–I must be dense! πŸ™‚

    1. If you get our emails, click on read the rest of…whatever the recipe post title is and it will take you to the full post and recipe. I hope that helps!

  9. My mother in law made this salad a couple months ago and it was DELISH!!! I think it would also be good mixed with some baby arugula to stretch it out and compliment the sweet melon. So good!!!

  10. I’m starting to think that cucumber is the magical ingredient to bridge fruits and veggies in a salad. Last summer I made Alanna’s sweet corn, blueberry, and cucumber salad. Twas delicious.
    Now I know what to do when I get a honeydew in the CSA farm share–because this salad looks very good to me.

  11. This salad looks delicious! Except for one thing…onion! I really really don’t like onions. Can you suggest a replacement that might give a similar flavor profile? Thanks!

  12. I am bringing the salad to a friend’s house. Can I mix the salad with the dressing before hand or is it better to mix it fresh? Thanks.

  13. 5 stars
    I made this to take to a dinner party BarBQ , Β 8 couples. Β Everyone tried it even though some did not care for all ingredients. Β I was a hit! Β  I will be adding this to my summer recipe box.
