- 4 cups of cubed watermelon
- 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
Start by preparing the ingredients. Cube the watermelon into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl.
Peel the cucumber and dice it into small pieces. Add the diced cucumber to the bowl with the watermelon.
Crumble the feta cheese over the watermelon and cucumber in the mixing bowl.
Chop the fresh mint leaves and add them to the bowl as well.
In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil and fresh lime juice to make the dressing.
Pour the dressing over the watermelon, cucumber, feta, and mint in the mixing bowl.
Gently toss all the ingredients together until everything is evenly coated with the dressing.
Taste the salad and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Remember that the feta cheese can be salty, so adjust the seasoning accordingly.
Once seasoned to your taste, transfer the salad to a serving dish or individual plates.
Garnish with additional fresh mint leaves if desired, and serve immediately as a refreshing side dish or light appetizer.
