This refreshing watermelon salad is one of our favorite summer sides. Feta, mint & avocado are the perfect tangy, creamy, and fresh counterpoints to the juicy watermelon.

Ingredients

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

For the salad

  • 5 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 heaping cup diced English cucumber
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onions
  • cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • cup torn mint or basil leaves
  • ½ jalapeño or serrano pepper, thinly sliced, optional
  • Sea salt

Instructions

  • Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, garlic and salt.
  • Arrange the watermelon, cucumber, and red onions on a large plate or platter. Drizzle with half the dressing. Top with the feta, avocado, mint, and serrano pepper, if using, and drizzle with remaining dressing. Season to taste and serve.
