This simple and refreshing watermelon salad is made of sweet watermelon, blueberries, creamy salty feta, fresh mint and basil. The lime-honey dressing brings this salad together, adding tang and a little extra punch. This watermelon feta salad is best prepared and served right away, but you
can make the dressing up to 3 days in advance and save it in the fridge.


  • For the Honey-Lime Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons quality extra virgin olive oil
  • For the Watermelon Salad
  • 1/2 watermelon peeled, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 15 fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, more to your liking


Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, olive oil and pinch of salt. Set aside.

Make the Salad: In a large bowl or serving platter with sides, combine the watermelon,  blueberries and fresh herbs.

Finish and Serve: Top the watermelon salad with the dressing and gently toss to combine. Top with feta cheese and serve!

Variations: you can add shallots or red onions, avocado cubes, or hot peppers. You can also season the salad with a dash of pepper flakes which adds a little bit of heat with sweet undertones.
