This watermelon salad with cucumber, feta and mint is a real treat! It is refreshing and tasty during the summer and especially during hot weather. You will like to enjoy it under the sun or near a swimming pool.
Hope you had a happy 4th of July! I believe that little by little we are able to relive a kind of normal life even if the new variant begins to be heard louder and louder! I think I resign myself to this situation. The months that have passed were already so difficult. We must therefore succeed in being positive in all this sea of stress and anxiety. But if you have any tips, I’ll take it!
To bring some sunshine into my life I love making this watermelon salad. This is a recipe that I must have started making in the USA. It’s so common to buy a big watermelon and eat delicious quarters when the heat waves are here. This is what we did with my husband. I tried to add other ingredients with the watermelon to make something good and the result was this salad! I love feta and I love adding it a lot of my recipes so why not in this salad? The crunchy side of the cucumber is also a real plus.
What ingredients do you need?
Watermelon: how to make watermelon salad without watermelon? This is of course the star ingredient of this recipe. Choose the ripe one for more flavor.
Cucumber: I find that it gives a crunchy touch to the salad
Feta: the watermelon / feta combination goes really well together and gives a lot of flavor. I really like the feta in « blocks » from Trader Joe’s, so I can then cut big cubes.
Mint: it adds lots of freshness
Lime: it enhances the taste
