This watermelon salad recipe is truly super easy to make, which is ideal around my chaotic house! It also pairs well with just about anything and adds color to the table as well! But because it’s so simple, the quality of the ingredients is key. You’ve got to have a super ripe watermelon and high quality feta cheese to make this one taste incredible.
8 Cups Cubed Ripe Watermelon
2 Organic Mini Cucumbers or 1/2 English Cucumber
2oz Feta Cheese Crumbles
Lemon Zest from 1/2 Lemon
Chop the watermelon into cubes. Slice the cucumbers (if using an English cucumber, slice it into half moons). Chop the basil. Zest the lemon.
Arrange the watermelon and cucumbers on a platter. Sprinkle with feta crumbles, lemon zest, and sea salt. Taste and adjust flavors as desired. (If you’d like, you can add freshly ground black pepper or a drizzle of olive oil.) Serve immediately. If making ahead, refrigerate the cubed watermelon separately: it releases a lot of water after it is cut. Then assemble the salad directly before serving.
