Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon + cucumbers is one of the most refreshing combos of all time. Throw in some mint, red onion, and feta and toss it all with a very simple vinaigrette (just olive oil + red wine vinegar), and you’ve got yourself a mean summer salad. It’s the perfect summer side to go along grilled chickenany cut of steak, or even a hamburger—beef, chicken, or veggie!

Tips from the test kitchen:

We love the saltiness and crumbliness of feta, but if you’re not a fan, fresh mozzarella balls or goat cheese would work, too. To take some of the bite out of red onions, soak the slices in water for about 15 minutes.



1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil


2 tbsp. red wine vinegar


1/2 tsp. kosher salt


3 c. cubed seedless watermelon


1 c. medium cucumber, chopped


1 c. crumbled feta


1/2 c. red onion, thinly sliced


1/2 c. coarsely chopped mint

Flaky sea salt, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt.
  2. In a large serving bowl, combine watermelon, cucumber, feta, red onion, and mint. Pour over dressing, tossing to combine.
  3. Garnish with more mint and flaky sea salt.
