watermelon and feta salad

Here is a great and incredibly easy dish that is perfect for a Lag B’Omer picnic, Shabbat lunch, or any spring or summer meal when you desire something fresh and flavorful.

The ingredients are exactly what the recipe states – watermelon and feta. The salty-sweet combination is surprisingly delicious and refreshing.

Simply cut an approximately 8 lb. watermelon into chunks. Toss gently in a large serving bowl with 5-6 ounces of crumbled feta cheese.

Sometimes we add mint leaves for flavor, but personally we prefer this dish with just the watermelon and feta, or occasionally with a container of yellow grape tomatoes tossed in to add a little kick and some pretty color. No dressing is needed, the flavors really enhance each other and nothing additional is necessary.

Sometimes simple is really the best!

Serves 8 – 10 people as a side dish.

  • I love love this salad! When I was expecting my third, I craved this every time I saw feta cheese!
    It seems like an unlikely combination…but it’s so good.

    • We agree! At first the two ingredients together sound strange, but the flavors really do complement each other so well, and it’s such an easy thing to serve or bring to barbecues all summer.
