I absolutely love this watermelon cucumber salad, especially on a hot summer day. It’s easy and refreshing – and the unique flavors blend together for a great tasting salad that you can prepare in 10 minutes!

All you need for this recipe is cubed watermelon (or balled watermelon for a fancier presentation), chunks of cucumbers, crumbled feta cheese and fresh mint leaves. A simple lime dressing ties all the flavors together for a refreshing and delicious salad. It tastes good without the dressing, but I like the unique flavor it adds, so I usually include it.

Watermelon Cucumber Salad


  • 3 cups watermelon, cubed or balled
  • 1 1/2 cups cucumber cut into chunks (remove the seeds if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons small mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine the watermelon and cucumber in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Add the crumbled feta and mint leaves just before serving. Serve and enjoy!
Note: Mint leaves can turn brown, especially if cut, which is why I recommend waiting until you serve to add them. Also, it is tempting to purchase already crumbled feta cheese at the store, but it really does taste better when you buy a hunk and crumble it yourself.
