If you never heard of a watermelon feta combo, you have to give it a try! Cheese in general goes really well with different type of fruits, and Feta cheese is no exception. For more fruit and cheese combination ideas, check out my article on fruit and cheese pairings.
Opposing flavor combinations, such as sweet and savory, sweet and sour or sweet and spicy are designed to wake up our senses. Putting the unexpected ingredients together results in this mouthwatering watermelon summer salad that is a true joy to eat!
A classic version of the watermelon feta salad is using fresh mint, but I usually use fresh parsley instead as parsley is always available at the grocery store :) Parlsey tastes great with watermelon, Feta cheese and chopped onion!
Making the watermelon feta salad is very easy. All you need to do is cut a watermelon into 1-inch chunks, then mix it with chopped onion, crumbled feta cheese and chopped fresh parsley. Dress with a dressing of balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil. So yummy and refreshing!
This watermelon feta salad should be made right before serving. Do not let it sit as the watermelon will release its juices and turn the salad watery. You can pre-cut the watermelon in advance, but wait until an hour or less before serving to toss is all together.
