Ingredients for Refreshing Watermelon Salad

  • 1 mini watermelon (approximately 4 cups), rind removed and cubed
  • 2 Persian cucumbers (approximately 1 cup), sliced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil

  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil to taste

1. To make this delightful salad, start by cutting a ripe watermelon into bite-sized cubes. Next, slice a cucumber into thin rounds and crumble some feta cheese over the top.

2. In a large bowl, gently toss the watermelon, cucumber, and feta together. Add a handful of fresh mint leaves, torn into smaller pieces to release their fragrant oils. For the dressing, whisk together some olive oil, lime juice, a touch of honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Drizzle this over the salad and give it one final, gentle toss.

3. Serve the Refreshing Watermelon Salad chilled, and garnish with a few extra mint leaves for a beautiful presentation.
