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. Yes, watermelon salad is SO good! This Watermelon Feta Salad is my favorite because it is SO fresh and so easy to make. It is a summer staple at our house!

This salad is simple, easy to make, 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!
