Summertime Watermelon Salad

Jump to recipe

Crisp, cold watermelon tossed with tangy feta and fresh mint is the perfect summertime salad to have on a hot day.  This refreshing salad is a great side to have with grilled chicken, steak, and even hamburgers! 
As soon as summer starts rolling around, I keep an eye out for watermelons.  Sweet, juicy, cold cubes of watermelon are my absolute favorite, especially on days that the hot sun seems very unforgiving.  Almost 4 years ago, my cousin and her family came to visit us from England and my brother-in-law Josh (her husband) is actually the one who introduced me to this heavenly salad and I don’t think I’ve looked at watermelon in quite the same way since.  The first time Josh made this salad, I became a fan of the salad and his cooking (try his Sunday Roast) and ever since, I dream about my watermelon salad during the cold seasons and can’t wait to make it in the summer months.

I love that you only need a handful of ingredients to pull this luscious salad together.

Fresh Watermelon – have I stressed how much I love to eat cold cubes straight out of the fridge?
Feta – creamy and tangy, this cheese helps blend all of the flavors together
Mint – this fresh herb adds just a hint of pepper and is one of my favorite pairings with watermelon
Lemon Juice – trust me, the juice helps make all of the other flavors pop

You can also add ingredients like cucumbers and avocado.  I didn’t because for this particular time, I wanted to keep it simple but the crunchy cucumbers and creamy avocado do taste really good if you chose to add them in.

So what are you waiting for?  Try it out already and let me know what you think!  Tag me on Facebook or Instagram.

From my kitchen to yours, I hope you enjoy this delicious Summertime Watermelon Salad!
