Watermelon, Feta and Mint Salad

17 Dec, 2020

This is a beautifully fresh – and refreshing – salad to enjoy during the warmer months. Pair it with barbecued meat or fish for a more substantial meal.


1 medium watermelon
1 telegraph cucumber
150g crumbly feta
Handful of fresh mint leaves
Balsamic vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice watermelon and then dice into bite-sized cubes. Place into a large, shallow serving dish.
  2. Cut cucumber in half lengthways and then slice. Scatter over watermelon.
  3. Crumble over feta and scatter over mint leaves.
  4. Combine preferred ratio of vinegar and oil in a jar, season, and shake to emulsify. Drizzle over salad just before serving. (And leftover dressing will keep for weeks in the sealed jar.)
