Mellow and refreshing watermelon, cucumber, and tomatoes contrast with zingy red onion, feta cheese, and cool mint for a tantalizing combo of colors, textures, and flavors that will become a summer supper staple. This fresh, healthy, and unexpected salad proves that there’s more than one way to eat watermelon.
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.
