There’s more than one way to enjoy the classic sweet flavor of fresh watermelon besides eating it right off the rind. This watermelon feta salad is a light and refreshing complement to any summer meal, no matter if it’s for a cookout, potluck, or regular weeknight dinner. Combine sweet, salty, bright, and peppery flavors in this simple, 1-bowl side dish. Pick up a watermelon while they’re in season and make the salad ahead of time so the watermelon can fully soak up the dressing. There’s nothing better than a plate of this chilled salad on a hot summer day, so keep it in the fridge until it’s ready to serve. It’s safe to say this easy salad will become a summertime staple in your house.

How to Make It

Whisk 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper and 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint. Toss with 8 cups diced seedless watermelon, 1 chopped sweet onion and 1 chopped, seeded English cucumber. Crumble 4 oz. feta on top.
