Summer Watermelon Salad with Feta & Mint

Watermelon Salad in Bowl

This refreshing watermelon salad is one of our favorite summer side dishes. Crisp cucumber, creamy Feta, sweet strawberries, and tangy blueberries are great compliments to the juicy watermelon. Our White Balsamic is sweet and won’t darken the fruit!

Ingredients:

Dressing: 

Salad:

  • 5 Cups Sweet Watermelon, cubed
  • 2 Cups English Cucumber or Persian Cucumber, cubed
  • ⅓ Cup Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 1 Cup Fresh Blueberries
  • 2 Cups Quartered Fresh Strawberries
  • ⅓ cup Mint, torn or slivered (plus a bit more for serving)

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together the More Than Olives Picual (fruity, medium intensity) Olive Oil, More Than Olives White Balsamic, and sea salt. Set aside.

Place the watermelon, cucumber, strawberries, blueberries, and mint into a large bowl. Drizzle ¾ of the dressing on the mixture and gently scoop from the bottom and mix the salad.  

Add the Feta cheese and gently mix once more.  

Move the salad into the bowl you are serving in. Drizzle the rest of the dressing and sprinkle the remaining mint. Salad is ready to serve.

If you are making salad in advance, it can be placed in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours, but do not add the last of the dressing and mint topping until you are ready to serve. Take the salad from the fridge and give it one more gentle toss. Drizzle on the last of dressing and sprinkle the top with remaining mint. Serve immediately.

More Than Olives

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
Tonia Nichols

“Delicious and aromatic California olive oils and highly flavorful balsamic vinegar varieties! The employees are always friendly and helpful. I really appreciate that I can refill bottles too.”
