Salad Details

Happy Friday, y’all! Tomorrow is the first day of June so that means Summer is here! In the next few months I’ll be sharing my favorite fresh and healthy warm-weather eats. Let’s first start with my simple watermelon salad!

I pair this easy salad of only 5 ingredients, with a healthy balsamic vinaigrette for an added touch of sweetness and flavor. This recipe takes about 15 to whip up – so fast! I also want to point out, it’s also gluten-free. I usually pair this salad with bbq chicken or fish. It completes a perfect summer dinner! See below for all ingredients and steps – enjoy!

(makes 4-6 servings)

gluten free

1/2 medium watermelon cubed

1/2 cup diced red onion

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 

1/2 cup chopped fresh mint 

Cracked black pepper

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp water

1Tbsp dijon mustard

1 tsp honey



1. Take watermelon out of the fridge, cut into bite size cubes and place in a large bowl. I prefer COLD watermelon for the salad 😉

2. Add in diced red onions, chopped mint and crumbled feta cheese to the top of the watermelon. Finish of the salad with cracked black pepper to taste.

3. In a separate small bowl, mix together all ingredients for the balsamic dressing – vinegar, olive oil, water, mustard, honey and salt/pepper. I use a fork but you can also use a whisk.

4. Place a serving of the watermelon salad into a smaller bowl. Drizzle with about 1 Tbsp of balsamic dressing over the top. Enjoy!

Note: I don’t mix the dressing in the bigger bowl because if I have leftovers it will last longer without dressing. This is why I do it on individual servings!

  1. Thank you for this recipe!! I made it for a wedding shower and made it again for myself. I think I’ve had it 3 times this week, over greens, with chicken. Especially love the dressing. Yum!
