Summer Watermelon Salad

I have always been a tremendous fan of watermelon.  On a hot summer day there’s nothing better than chomping down on some subtly sweet, crisp, refreshing chunks of this tasty treat.

But I’m also always a fan of trying to make dishes slightly more exciting than their standard counterparts.  This dish isn’t particularly complicated in construction or intricate in the number of ingredients, but the flavors work outstandingly together.  This dish is excellent cheat dish (looks and tastes nice but is quick and simple to make) for summer picnics and potlucks!

Summer Watermelon Salad

  • 1 baby watermelon
  • 1 handful of feta cheese
  • 1 lime
  • 2-3 springs of mint


  1.  Cut the watermelon in half.  Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to scoop out the flesh and hold in a separate container
  2.  Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the container.  Chop the mint finely and add to the container.  Toss all the ingredients until evenly distributed.
  3. Return the contents of the container into the hollowed watermelon halves.  Sprinkle feta cheese on top and garnish with a spring of mint (optional).
