Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

One of my all-time favourite combinations: sweet watermelon and salty feta.  The pairing is ultimately delicious, and I can’t get enough of it.  If there is anything resembling a watermelon salad on a menu, it has to be mine!


This salad is so simple, and so it depends on the quality of both the watermelon and the feta.  The fresh mint helps to elevate all of the flavours, and I like a wee drizzle of balsamic for a bit of acid.

Try it, you’ll like it.

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad
Serves 2

  • 2 c. watermelon, cut into 2cm (3/4″) cubes (de-seeded if necessary)
  • 1/2 c. feta, cut into 1 cm (1/2″) cubes
  • 1/4 c. mint, sliced into thin ribbons
  • drizzle of balsamic vinegar

Gently combine watermelon, feta, and mint in a large bowl.  Drizzle a splash of balsamic over top.  Taste and add more balsamic if you’d like.

Eat with delight — this is a savoury/sweet fruit salad to-die-for.

    It looks so pretty but I just can’t get my head around it! haha, much like many of the other funny food combinations, I think of each flavour and wonder how they’re going to work together. I’ve seen this done so many times, so it must be good.

    Thanks for the reminder of this..
    I have served it before –but had forgotten about it and what could be prettier and more refreshing…

    Great idea

      Oh, I think it would be so pretty on skewers!

      You could use some of those salty, cured, black olives too! YUM!

    Yum! I just recently discovered this awesome combination. I haven’t tried it with mint, though–that sounds lovely! The other day I added some thinly sliced red onion, which was nice.

      Oh, it sounds glorious with red onion. Nice call. 🙂
