Watermelon Feta Guacamole-this refreshing and flavorful guacamole recipe is perfect for summertime!
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!
You end up with a beautiful bowl of guacamole that screams summer!
This Watermelon Feta Guacamole, is the perfect summer appetizer and snack! I know I will be eating it by the bowl all summer long!

Watermelon? Feta? Avocado? Put me in coach, I’m playing for your team.
Seriously ate 3 watermelons last week, it was so good. Know how my wife felt now when she was pregnant.
WOW , watermelon, cilantro, avocados some of our favorite things all mixed together, my daughters’ taste buds are going to go wild!
I would never have thought of combining watermelon, feta, and guacamole! But it seems like a good idea, and the colors go great together!
I absolutely LOVE the combination of watermelon and feta, but who woulda thunk it’d make a great guacamole!?!? This sounds soooo delicious
What a beautiful set!
Maria, I love this idea! I’m all about the watermelon this summer too. It’s been so good but it’s about to get much better in guacamole! great idea!
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. 🙂
How fun is this?! I would totally try this fun combo!!
The perfect guac for summer!
I love how refreshing this is!
I love avocados and watermelon.
Love the fresh look of this – fruit and guac is just amazing! You should try out pomegranate – TO DIE FOR!
Excellent flavors in this Maria!
This looks yummy might have to try it. Thanks! My favorite summer appetizer is anything with cucumber something cool and fresh.
Beautiful set. This recipe looks so intriguing. I can’t wait for my next party!
My favorite summer appetizer is homemade salsa or homemade bruschetta. Can;t beat fresh, rip tomatoes!
This looks sooooo good! I suppose my favorite appetizer is bruschetta.
I cannot wait to try this! Love avocados and watermelon but never even thought of putting them together! These dishes are beautiful!
So creative, Maria!! I need this for my next BBQ.
I love any kind of fancy guacamole! I think it’s so amazing how sweet and savory come together in fruit guacs!
So unique and a different take on guac! I love it!
Love this!! Great idea!!
A great guacamole.
Must try this recipe!
Love this idea! Watermelon, feta, and guacamole. What could be better?
From your whole food-y!
I would devour this salad in a heartbeat!! Love the savory and sweet notes here, Maria.
This looks so fresh and tasty! What a fun combo!
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.
Fried cheese sticks.
Fun giveaway and I have to try this guacamole!
I Love watermelon and salsa but I haven’t ever had them together but I will now because it looks and sounds Yummy!!!
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.
