The Salad:

  • ½ watermelon cubed (around 4 cups)
  • 1 small cucumber diced
  • ½ red onion thinly sliced
  • cup feta cheese crumbled
  • sprig mint leaves for garnish
  • pinch sea salt and black pepper

The Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice


  • Dice the cucumber and set aside.
  • Thinly slice the red onion.
  • Remove the seeds and skin from the watermelon. Cut the watermelon into stripes and the cubes. Set aside.
  • Combine the cubed watermelon, diced cucumber, and sliced red onions in a bowl.
  • In a small bowl, add the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, and whisk to combine. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  • Arrange the watermelon, cucumber, and red onions on a plate and drizzle with the dressing. Top with crumbled feta cheese and garnish with mint leaves. Season with salt and pepper and serve!


  • Choose a watermelon that feels heavy for its size, with a uniform shape and a creamy yellow spot where it sat on the ground (indicating ripeness). Knock on the watermelon – a deep, hollow sound signifies a ripe, juicy melon. Avoid those with soft, flat, or indented areas, as they may be overripe or lack sufficient water content.
