Simple Watermelon Feta Salad ( with Cucumber, Basil, and Mint )

Written by admin

This watermelon feta salad recipe is a fast, fresh, and pretty summer salad that’s really simple to throw together for easy entertaining.

Prep Time 15 minutes | Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 mini watermelon cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 English cucumber or 2 Persian mini cucumbers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil torn/chopped finely
  • Crumbled feta to taste
  • Balsamic vinegar to taste
  • Olive oil to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Prep your watermelon, cucumber, mint, and basil, and add them to a salad bowl. Add the feta as well.
  2. You can either add the vinegar and oil to a jar and shake it up or just drizzle a bit on top of the salad and toss like I did. I didn’t put quantities because everyone’s tastes vary, but I would start with 1-2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of olive oil and go from there.
  3. Season with salt & pepper as needed (feta is pretty salty so you may be able to skip the salt) and serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

  • I encourage you to play with ingredient quantities in this salad to suit your tastes.
