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!

  1. WOW , watermelon, cilantro, avocados some of our favorite things all mixed together, my daughters’ taste buds are going to go wild!

  2. I would never have thought of combining watermelon, feta, and guacamole! But it seems like a good idea, and the colors go great together!

  3. I absolutely LOVE the combination of watermelon and feta, but who woulda thunk it’d make a great guacamole!?!? This sounds soooo delicious

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. This looks yummy might have to try it. Thanks! My favorite summer appetizer is anything with cucumber something cool and fresh.

  6. I cannot wait to try this! Love avocados and watermelon but never even thought of putting them together! These dishes are beautiful!

  7. I love any kind of fancy guacamole! I think it’s so amazing how sweet and savory come together in fruit guacs!

  8. 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.

  9. I Love watermelon and salsa but I haven’t ever had them together but I will now because it looks and sounds Yummy!!!

  11. Hi Maria,

    We are doing a guacamole roundup on Friday for Guacamole Day and wondered if we could include a link to your recipe in our post. We would also like to use your picture and will feature it with your blog’s name.

    Thanks so much.
