    Watermelon is a summer staple at our house. We love slicing watermelon and eating it plain, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up. And this watermelon salad recipe is the perfect way to do that!

    It’s light, refreshing and full of summer flavors. Plus I just love how it’s full of vibrant colors…so pretty! The ultimate fresh and delicious side dish for the summer time!

    You can definitely make this watermelon salad without the dressing, but I find that little bit helps tie all the flavors together. It adds another layer of flavor and pairs wonderfully with all of the fresh ingredients. I also love to drizzle on some balsamic glaze right before serving!

    Cutting watermelon

    To make this watermelon and feta salad, you can either add in melon balls or squares. My kids love the balls, but it does take a little bit longer.

    If you’d prefer to simply cut your watermelon in squares, check out this easy tutorial. You’ll have perfectly cut watermelon pieces in no time!

    Storage

    This watermelon and feta salad tastes best if served the first day. Watermelon is a super watery fruit, so it won’t hold up too long in the refrigerator.

    To make ahead: Simply chop the watermelon, cucumber and mint a few hours before serving. You can also whisk the dressing together beforehand as well. Right before serving, add chopped ingredients to a large bowl, along with feta and dressing. Toss and then serve!
