Watermelon Feta Salad

watermelon feta salad

Watermelon is probably my favorite thing about summer. I eat it every day without fail. I think I have an obsession. So when I was reading my new Real Simple magazine the other night and saw a watermelon salad on the cover, I was inspired. The next night I created a watermelon feta salad for dinner.

This salad is simple and perfect for a hot summer day. The flavor combination might sound odd at first, just ask Josh…he was not interested in tasting this salad, but in the end the salad won him over. The mint, feta cheese, and red onion go surprisingly well with the watermelon. Josh added balsamic vinegar to his, but I enjoyed mine plain.


If you are looking for a light, cool, and refreshing salad, try this watermelon feta salad. I bet it will be on your menu for the remainder of the summer!
