You only need a few ingredients to make this salad. For best results, make sure you use the best watermelon, strawberries, and cucumber you can find! I love making this salad in the summertime, when produce is at it’s peak!
- Cucumber (I like to use an English cucumber)
- Mint leaves (basil would also be good)
- Olive oil
- Lime juice
- Feta cheese
- Sea salt
FYI-If you need the salad to be vegan, you can leave out the honey and feta cheese. The salad will still be tasty!
How to Make
This salad is beyond easy to make, which is SO nice. It is easy to whip up so you can spend more time outside, enjoying the summer sun!
- First, cut your watermelon into bite-size cubes, slice the strawberries, and chop the cucumber.
- In a large bowl, combine the watermelon, strawberries, cucumber, and mint leaves.
- In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, and honey. Drizzle over the salad and gently stir until salad is coated. Season with sea salt, to taste.
- Top with crumbled feta cheese and additional mint leaves, if desired.
That is it! I told you this salad was easy to make!
This salad is best the day it is made, but will be fine for several hours. I personally like to serve it chilled, but it’s good at room temperature too.
If you want to make the salad in advance, you can cut up the watermelon, strawberries, and cucumber, but keep them in separate containers in the fridge so they don’t get mushy. You can also whisk together the dressing in advance. When ready to enjoy, combine everything in your large bowl and enjoy!
