Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon Salad –  an unexpected concoction of watermelon, mint, feta cheese, and red onion. This watermelon salad is surprisingly perfect in every way, blending sweet and savory in one delicious bite! 

Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon is probably my favorite thing about summer. I eat it every day without fail. I think I have an obsession. I love eating it plain, in slices, cut up in cubes, or in a salad.

This Watermelon Feta Salad is my favorite because it is so fresh and so easy to make. The flavor combination might sound odd at first, but trust me, it is a WINNER! It is the perfect salad for a hot summer day and a fun way to jazz up everyone’s favorite summer fruit.

How to Make Watermelon Feta Salad

I like to start with a chilled watermelon. If your watermelon isn’t cold to start with, you can always chill the salad before serving. Cold watermelon is the best on a hot summer day!

Cut the watermelon into bite sized cubes with a sharp knife.

In a large bowl, combine the watermelon, red onion slices, crumbled feta cheese, and fresh mint. If you are going to add balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze, add right before serving.

Perfect Summer Side Dish

You can serve this light and refreshing watermelon salad alongside any summer meal. It is the perfect side dish to bring to a summer potluck, party, or BBQ. The sweet and salty combo will WOW your friends and family and that pop of mint makes the salad extra special.

  1. hello, just found this recipe and it reminded me of home. Eating watermelons with feta cheese is common in Turkey (or at the southern parts) Our favorite dish (for lunch) during those hot summers. I will try adding some fresh mint next time like you did. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 4 stars
    This was a lovely salad. I tasted something similar at a wedding reception several years ago and have been looking for a recipe ever since. Some of the family thought the flavors were a little strong (probably from the Feta cheese) but I loved it and will be making it again.
