Cucumber Watermelon and Feta Salad
An easy, fresh and super light Mediterranean watermelon salad. Three main ingredients: watermelon, cucumber, and feta cheese. But to take it to the next level, we add some fresh mint and a basil-lime vinaigrette. The perfect side dish to grilling out or bring to your next neighborhood gathering!
1/2 cup Basil Olive Oil
1/2 watermelon, peeled, cut into cubes
1 English (or Hot House) cucumber, cubed (about 2 cupfuls of cubed cucumbers)
2 tsp finely chopped fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
fresh cracked pepper and sea salt to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together the Basil Olive Oil and balsamic with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Set aside for a moment.
In a large bowl or serving platter with sides, combine the watermelon, cucumber and fresh mint.
Top the watermelon salad with vinaigrette and gently toss to combine. Top with the feta cheese and serve!
Season with salt and pepper as needed. Feta cheese tends to be on the salty side, so be careful not to add too much salt.
