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 chicken, any 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.
Flaky sea salt, for garnish (optional)
- In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt.
- In a large serving bowl, combine watermelon, cucumber, feta, red onion, and mint. Pour over dressing, tossing to combine.
- Garnish with more mint and flaky sea salt.
