Watermelon Feta Salad Recipe

Sweet watermelon, salty feta, and cool mint combined with a delicious zesty dressing make this watermelon feta salad a go-to staple for summer!

One of my most favorite things about spring and summer is fresh seasonal fruits, in particular melons with which I love to make this Watermelon Feta Salad.  This is the perfect salad to enjoy on a hot summer day, enjoying your family or a small group of friends in the yard.

It’s fresh and delicious with a sweet, yet savory taste from the feta cheese.  The mint adds brightness and the rice wine vinegar ties it all together!

Take advantage of sales on watermelon and feta cheese to make this salad this week.  The Primo Taglio Feta cheese crumbles package is on sale for $2.00 as part of the Big Book of Savings through the month of June.  You can find that in the deli of your local Safeway.

It’s perfect for any backyard BBQ or as a salad you take to a friend’s house.  If you have fresh mint growing in the garden, it would make an amazing salad.

Watermelon Feta Salad With Mint Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet, seedless watermelon, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 3 ounces of feta cheese
  • 2-3 springs of fresh mint

How to Make Watermelon Feta Salad

On a clean work surface cube watermelon and transfer to a medium bowl.  Add oil, rice vinegar, and black pepper.  Toss lightly to coat.

Arrange watermelon on a serving platter.  If you’d like, you can serve on top of a bed of butter lettuce for presentation, but I prefer it directly on a plate.  Crumble feta cheese and chopped mint leaves over the watermelon.

Chill until ready to serve.  Before serving, add a pinch of ground black pepper over salad for contrast.

You may think it a strange combination, but trust me, it is one of my most requested recipes and it’s always devoured anytime I serve it by kids and adults alike!
