Watermelon and Cucumber Salad

Sharing is caring!

Watermelon and Cucumber Salad

I love when summer finally comes around and there is fresh, sweet and tasty watermelon available everywhere! We’ve made watermelon sorbet, watermelon lemonade and lots of times just cut it up and eat it plain. I recently made this amazing Watermelon and Cucumber Salad and had to share it with you. This was super easy to put together and the perfect treat on a hot Texas day! Watermelon and cucumbers are two things I can’t say I have put together before. But this dish was delicious and so refreshing!

Watermelon and Cucumber Salad

Prep Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Course Appetizer
Servings 2

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 of a ripe watermelon diced into bite-size chunks
  • 1/2 of a cucumber diced into bite-size chunks. I wash them and leave the skin on
  • 2 ounces of feta cheese crumbled
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 5 fresh mint leaves cut into thin strips
  • fresh ground pepper

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, toss together the watermelon and cucumber chunks and set to the side.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice and black pepper.
  • Sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese on top of the watermelon and cucumber mixture, and pour the olive oil "dressing" on top.
  • Garnish with strips of mint leaves on top.

Notes

To make this ahead of time, go ahead and toss the watermelon and cucumber together and place the bowl in the refrigerator. Mix the olive oil with lime juice and pepper and also place in the fridge. Top with cheese, olive oil mixture and mint when ready to serve.

The recipe given above is for a serving of two, but it can easily be doubled (or more) to serve larger groups. Be sure to check out all of our amazing recipes HERE!
