Salty, tangy feta mixes with sweet watermelon and fresh mint to bring you a true taste of summer in every refreshing bite. Just delicious and the perfect salad to bring along to your summer BBQs and potlucks.



For the dressing:

For the salad:

  • 6 cups seedless watermelon, cut into small cubes
  • 12 ounces feta cheese, diced into small cubes
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped


  1. Make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, shallots, honey, salt, and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, whisking constantly. Set aside in a mason jar and cover with lid
  2. Make the salad: In a large bowl, stir together gently the watermelon, feta, and mint. Give mason jar a good shake and drizzle salad with dressing just to coat. Toss lightly, being sure to coat all ingredients well. Adjust amount of dressing and salt/pepper as desired.
  3. Serve and enjoy the refreshingness!


  • I like to make this salad ahead of time, leaving all of the salad components and dressing stored in separate containers until just before serving
  • You will most likely have extra dressing. Store any leftovers covered in the fridge for up to two weeks
