Deluxe Watermelon Salad Recipe

Deluxe Watermelon Salad Recipe

There are few fruits I lust after more than a fresh summer watermelon. I just cannot get enough. You can use the whole watermelon and I even drink it by putting it in my spa water.

Today I want to highlight my favorite summer delight: deluxe watermelon salad. My version has feta and strawberries, along with a few variations you might want to try. It’s perfect for a dinner party or just a snack/treat for yourself – and it’s easy, so easy.

Deluxe Watermelon Salad


  • 1/2 seedless watermelon, cubed or balled
  • 4 oz feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
  • 1/2 lb strawberries, sliced thin
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons basil leaves, finely chopped
  • flaky sea salt, to garnish

watermelon feta salad


Gather all of your ingredients except the salt and ensure everything is cubed, crumbled, chopped or cut.

Combine all ingredients into a large salad bowl and distribute ingredients evenly.

Keep cool until ready to serve. When serving, give each dish a gentle sprinkle of sea salt. DO NOT put the sea salt on earlier – salt and watermelon are amazing together, but the salt also draws out the water in the melon; if you salt too early, your water will bleed out and this recipe does not make for a good cold soup.

Optional Extras

  • Want to take it over the top? Cherry tomatoes sliced in half are a great addition to this recipe.
  • Want more green? Just drop in some arugula.
  • Not sweet enough? A small dollop of raw honey on each dish as served is heavenly with watermelon & feta.
  • Need even more color? Blueberry and cantaloupe will slide in here, no problem, and goes amazingly well with the feta and other fruits.
