Watermelon, Mint, and Feta Salad


I LOVE watermelon. I can eat it endlessly, and it’s the most delicious and refreshing thing.

This is a riff on a salad my mom likes to make, the most important bits are really some sort of green, ripe sweet watermelon and feta. You can take it in any direction you like, I serve mine with a lemon vinaigrette but a balsamic reduction, red wine or raspberry dressing also go very well!

It’s the best thing during this summer heat!

What you need:

  • 2 cups ripe watermelon, cubed
  • 3-4 cups arugula
  • 1 mini cucumber sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small shallot thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh mint, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup feta, crumbled


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey or agave
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. On a large wide platter or in a large bowl, layer in arugula, shallot, cucumber, watermelon, mint and feta.
  2. Serve and drizzle with dressing.

This makes enough for 2 large portions or 4 sides. This salad is super easy to make and so refreshing and delicious I hope you try it!
