Watermelon, feta, cucumber salad

I put together this light, fresh dish for a small Women’s Wine Wednesday at my house. I loved the sweet fruit, salty cheese and mild cucumber all flavored with some lime juice, a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Delicious!


I mean this screams summer! Right?


Watermelon, feta, cucumber salad, serves 4-6 as a side


  • 3-4 cups water melon, cut into 1” chunks
  • 1/2 lime, juiced and zested
  • 1/2-3/4 cup diced or spialized cucumber
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (I used a Persian Lime flavor)
  • Balsamic vinegar or glaze (optional)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese


  1. Arrange watermelon on a plate. Zest one half of a lime and juice it. Pour juice and zest on the watermelon.
  2. Cut cucumber and place on top of watermelon. Top evenly with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and feta cheese.
  3. Toss diced water melon, cucumber and ½ cup of feta cheese with red wine vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Chill in fridge until serving, the colder the better.


I’ve really been hitting the jackpot with watermelon this summer! Yum! Enjoy.
