Summer, summer, summer. Watermelon just screams that it is finally summertime. This watermelon salad is a great way to refresh on one of those hot summer days. We once brought this salad to a summer kick-off backyard barbecue and every last piece was eaten. We’ll be bringing it to many more backyard barbecues to come because, hello, it’s pretty easy to make, it is healthy, and it is delicious. Plus, throwing mint on it makes kids scared to eat it so there’s more for the adults.

So how do you cube watermelon? There are all sorts of fancy methods and videos where they seem to just work a few quick maneuvers with the knife, slide it around all the edges, and boom….a whole bunch of cubes fall out of the rind. We’ve watched them way more times than we should admit, and we just stick with a more regular old slice and dice.

  • How big should the watermelon cubes be?

    You want to go with bite sized pieces. Too big of cubes and you’ll end up with way too much watermelon in your mouth at once and that’s just awkward.

  • Can I make watermelon feta salad ahead of time?

    If you’re crunched on time, this recipe will keep overnight in the refrigerator, so take advantage and enjoy your relaxed morning before your event!

  • Storage and Longevity:

    Watermelon feta salad will last in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. If you don’t have a large enough container, store in a large bowl covered in plastic wrap.

The fruits scream summer. The colors scream summer. Everything screams summer! This is a very refreshing salad. So healthy and delicious! Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

Rachel,
You're right–waving green leaves at most things causes my kids to back away . . . . now I'm wondering if an herbed butter on corn on the cob would render it ALL MINE. Something to ponder.
My mint has woken up from winter and is burgeoning forth from the confines, so I'm glad for an excuse to cut it back.
Thanks!

This is such a refreshing sounding salad 🙂
