In warmer weather, we crave light, vegetarian dishes like this one that make beautiful use of seasonal produce. You can also make this salad vegan by switching out the feta cheese for Kalamata olives so you don’t lose that tangy element. And if you’re not a mint fan, try basil instead.

We dressed our watermelon salad with a super easy make-it-yourself lemon and olive oil salad dressing that adds a subtle zestiness.

A little bit savory and a little bit sweet, this summery Greek-style salad makes a perfect side dish for a Mediterranean meal with crusty bread, grilled meat and veggies, or falafel.
