Mediterranean Watermelon Salad


Total Time:



Here is another great idea for a quick lunch or a crowd pleaser at a dinner party. This salad combines the flavors of the Mediterranean with the perfect summer fruit, watermelon. I whipped up a quick batch of this and devoured it for lunch immediately.

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad



  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 pound watermelon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp mint
  • 2 tbsp dill
  • 5 oz real fabulous delicious feta


  • Slice the onion and put into a large bowl. Squeeze the lime juice over the onion and let rest. Meanwhile trim the watermelon and cut into bite sized pieces. Remove the onion from the lime juice. Add the honey, salt, pepper and oil to the lime juice and whisk until emulsified. Place the watermelon slices on a platter and top with the onions, herbs and feta. Drizzle the emulsified oil on top of the fruit.

It is the perfect light and refreshing dish!

    Looks light and fresh! I am always tempted by savory watermelon salads, but I don't think I've tried one yet. Hopefully I'll get a chance to make this recipe!

    I just came over from My Tasty Treasures and I love your blog, especially the culinary school posts. I wish I would've went to culinary school, but I think I missed that boat. Sounds like lots of hard work, but very fun.
