Watermelon Salad – an unexpected concoction of watermelon, mint, feta cheese, and red onion. This watermelon salad is surprisingly perfect in every way, blending sweet and savory in one delicious bite!
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.
This Watermelon Feta Salad is my favorite because it is so fresh and so easy to make. The flavor combination might sound odd at first, but trust me, it is a WINNER! It is the perfect salad for a hot summer day and a fun way to jazz up everyone’s favorite summer fruit.
You only need four ingredients to make this refreshing salad!
- Red onion
- Feta cheese
You can also add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze, but that is optional. The salad is good with or without it!
How to Make Watermelon Feta Salad
I like to start with a chilled watermelon. If your watermelon isn’t cold to start with, you can always chill the salad before serving. Cold watermelon is the best on a hot summer day!
Cut the watermelon into bite sized cubes with a sharp knife.
In a large bowl, combine the watermelon, red onion slices, crumbled feta cheese, and fresh mint. If you are going to add balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze, add right before serving.
Perfect Summer Side Dish
You can serve this light and refreshing watermelon salad alongside any summer meal. It is the perfect side dish to bring to a summer potluck, party, or BBQ. The sweet and salty combo will WOW your friends and family and that pop of mint makes the salad extra special.
