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!

  1. We had a salad like this at our blogger meet up in Boston- it was incredible! They sliced the feta and sat it on top of chunks of watermelon- amazingness. I’ve been craving it ever since

    I got an email from your gmail account that looks like someone has hacked your account. The email claims you are in trapped Madrid Spain and asks for money. You should go check your gmail account and reset your password right away.


  3. I have to admit it doesn’t sound like something I would ever try. But I love all the ingredients as seperate entities so maybe……We have several watermelons in our garden that are almost ripe!

  4. This looks icy cool and refreshing. I love the combination – it’s perfect for a hot summer evening. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  5. Watermelon and feta is one of the best new-to-me combinations i’ve discovered in the past year. Not sure why, but it works! I really hope you’re able to get your gmail back up and running soon – it’s so unsettling when things happen.

  6. Lovely, fresh salad! Mint really lights up the flavor of watermelon. I hope your hacking problems are getting solved. I’m so sorry that happened to you!

  7. Oh my, your salad looks great! I love it! Thanks for sharing, I might actually prepare this one for tonight, we have watermelons. Yay! I wanna share this to my friends in Foodista too, if you don’t mind? Just add the foodista widget for watermelon at the end of this post, and that should do it. The widget will direct readers to your post when they go looking for watermelon recipes 😀 Thanks and keep on posting, Cheers, Amy from Australia xx

  8. A friend told me about watermelon feta salad last week and I have been thinking about it ever since. I just would never think of using watermelon like that, but it sounds so delicious! So glad to have this recipe!

  9. I love watermelon too. I buy those little baby guys and between my boys and me, they are gone within a day. Time to step up and buy a big one! I first made a salad like this two years ago (I add arugula) and couldn’t believe how well the flavors work together. Yum!

  10. We recently did a watermelon salad when we had to use some leftover watermelon. It is so refreshing for these hots days we have been having lately.

  12. 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. 🙂
