Watermelon Salad Ingredients

Ingredients You Will Need

  • Watermelon – cut into cubes.
  • Cucumbers – diced and with the seeds removed. Or you can use English cucumbers which are smaller, sweeter and have less seeds.
  • Red Onion – thinly sliced.
  • Feta Cheese – crumbled; you can add more or less based on your preference.
  • Chopped Basil – or you can use mint here if you prefer.
  • Olive Oil – the base of the dressing.
  • Red Wine Vinegar – this has a tangy flavor and is typical in vinaigrettes.
  • Honey – to add sweetness.
  • Salt – to taste.

How to Make Watermelon Salad

First, cut and dice up your fruit and veggies and put them in a large bowl. We cut the watermelon into chunks but you can make them smaller, more bite-sized pieces if you’d like.

Add the feta, basil in.

Make the dressing by whisking together the oil, vinegar and honey

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.

Feel free to get creative with this salad and remove or add ingredients to make it perfect for you.

How To Store the Watermelon Salad

This can last in the fridge in an air-tight container for about 3-4 days.
