- 1 mini seedless watermelon, rind removed and chopped into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes
- 1 medium long English cucumber, thinly sliced
- ½ cup (75 g) feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lime juice*
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
- ½ tsp (2 mL) kosher salt
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh mint**
*Don’t have any limes in the fridge? Lemons work here too. We prefer watermelon and lime together, but don’t let 1 tbsp (15 mL) of lime juice hold you back.
**Dill is a wonderful replacement if you don’t have any mint or your family doesn’t like it.
Add watermelon and cucumber to a large bowl or serving dish. Toss to combine.
Top with feta and drizzle with lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and garnish with mint.
Serve immediately or placed covered in refrigerator for up to 2 hours (any longer and the watermelon will release too much liquid).
