I recently made a very yummy and unique salad as a side dish with our dinner! It is a chilled Watermelon, feta cheese, and mint salad, to be exact! Wow! This is a fantastic chilled salad to serve when temperatures heat up, like it’s doing in Oregon this week (temps of 108)!

I found the recipe for this watermelon feta mint salad on Pinterest and thought it sounded interesting, and guess what? It tastes FANTASTIC! Cold, ripe sweet watermelon pairs unbelievably well with slightly salty feta cheese! The addition of chopped fresh mint, a touch of olive oil and a some red onion make this a delectable and refreshing summer salad!

How To Make A Watermelon Feta Mint Salad

This simple recipe could not be any easier to prepare! There are two methods, and both are simple! Shown here is the way I made this yummy watermelon feta mint salad. See the printable recipe at the bottom of this post for other method.

Cut up a well-chilled seedless watermelon into cubes. You only need 6 cups worth of watermelon cubes, and so this was only two large slices out of a whole watermelon!

Cold watermelon melon is cut into chunks for the salad.

Add the remaining ingredients to the watermelon cubes. These ingredients are crumbled feta cheese, olive oil, thinly sliced red onion, and chopped fresh mint. Season the salad with a little bit of salt and pepper to taste.

Toss gently to combine, and try not to break up the feta crumbles too much.  See the printable recipe below, for another way to prepare this salad!

Olive oil, red onion, chopped mint leaves and feta cheese are added to the salad.

Serve The Watermelon Feta Mint Salad Chilled

Once the salad is gently mixed together, it CAN be served right away. HOWEVER, I think the salad is at it’s best when really cold, and the flavors have come together in the fridge.  If you like watermelon really cold, refrigerate this salad for about an hour before serving.

When ready to serve, place the watermelon feta mint salad in a pretty serving dish, and garnish with a fresh mint sprig. Grab a fork, and dig in, because it is DELICIOUS!

We’ve had record-breaking heat here in the Portland, Oregon area this week.  Our power has gone out 2 times in 24 hours (last night and this morning), so it hasn’t been fun trying to stay cool with no electricity or cooling! We are very thankful for COLD SALADS and CANDLES, and that the problems have now been fixed.  Whew!!! 

If you enjoy watermelon like we do, be sure and check out some of my other recipes featuring it, like Watermelon, Feta and Balsamic Bites, Watermelon and Cucumber Gazpacho, and Watermelon Lime & Mint Agua Fresca!  Hope you have a great day!
