Fresh watermelon and cucumber are tossed with lemon and mint and served over a bed of silky whipped feta.



Watermelon Salad Ingredients:

  • 5 to 6 cups diced seedless watermelon
  • 3 Persian cucumbers, sliced
  • quarter of a small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • fine sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons finely-chopped fresh mint leaves

Whipped Feta Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces feta cheese
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Whip the feta. Add the feta, Greek yogurt and olive oil to a food processor. Purée for 2 to 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, until the feta is silky smooth.
  2. Toss the watermelon salad. Add the watermelon, cucumber and red onion to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle evenly with the lemon juice, a pinch of salt and pepper, and toss very briefly to combine.
  3. Assemble. Spread the whipped feta out evenly on a serving plate. Top with the watermelon, cucumber and red onion, and sprinkle evenly with the chopped fresh mint and a few twists of black pepper.
  4. Serve. Serve immediately and enjoy!
