Refreshing Watermelon Salad

Perfect for hot days, this salad combines juicy watermelon, crisp cucumber, and aromatic herbs for a refreshing burst of flavour in every bite. Creamy feta (or a vegan alternative) and tangy balsamic dressing elevate it to a whole new level. Not only delicious, but also incredibly hydrating, this salad is the perfect choice for picnics, barbecues, or a light lunch.


  1. Cube the watermelon and dice the cucumber. Thinly slice the red onion and chop the mint and basil leaves.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon, cucumber, red onion, mint, and basil.
  3. Gently fold in the crumbled feta cheese, being careful not to break the cubes of watermelon.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar (or lime juice), salt, and pepper.
  5. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and gently toss to combine all ingredients.
  6. Serve immediately or refrigerate for 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together. Enjoy this refreshing salad as a light lunch or a side dish!

For extra flavour, add a handful of arugula or baby spinach.
Toasted pine nuts or sliced almonds can add a nice crunch to the salad.
