Watermelon Feta Salad

5 ratings

This recipe, adapted from one on the website of the National Watermelon Promotion Board, was a real surprise when I first tried it. I had no idea how delicious watermelon and feta cheese could be together. And with red onion, chopped romaine and a fresh basil vinaigrette, the salad is crunchy, juicy, sweet, salty and zingy all at the same time.


  • 6-7 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups seeded, cubed watermelon
  • 12 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 12 cup crumbled Organic Valley Feta
  • 14 cup pureed watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons finely sliced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Place salad greens in a large, bright-colored salad bowl. Arrange watermelon cubes, red onions and feta in three piles over the greens; keep chilled until ready to serve.

2. For dressing, mix pureed watermelon, basil, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss salad with dressing.
