Watermelon Feta Salad


This is a refreshing, simple 5 ingredient combination that goes down a treat on hot days. Less of a salad and more of a throwing together of ingredients. We had the salad tonight as a side with some grilled prawns for a light, easy Summer meal.

Mix up the proportions based on how much watermelon you use.

Ingredients (to serve 2 – 4 as a side dish)


  1. Quarter of a Watermelon
  2. 50 grams (1/4 packet) Good quality feta (I used lemnos brand)
  3. Juice of 1/2 lemon
  4. Bunch of fresh mint leaves, torn
  5. Dash of olive oil
  6. Generous amount of cracked pepper


Slice the watermelon into long thin pieces on the diagonal (This is how I like them, you can also cut into small cubes if you prefer) and arrange on a serving dish/ salad bowl.

Combine the lemon juice and olive in a jar, shake up and drizzle over the watermelon. Top with crumbled feta, torn mint and crack over a generous amount of black pepper. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil if you wish. Serve and enjoy – would match very nicely with a glass of chilled rose.
