Watermelon and cucumbers should be the official flavors of summer. Throw in some mint, red onion, and feta and toss it all with a very simple vinaigrette (just olive oil + red wine vinegar), and you've got yourself an easy, refreshing summer salad. Recipe courtesy of Recipe


1/4 cup:extra-virgin olive oil

2 tbsp: red wine vinegar

1/2 tsp: kosher salt

3 cups: cubed seedless watermelon

1 cup: medium cucumber, chopped

1 cup: crumbled feta

1/2 cup: red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup: coarsely chopped mint


In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt.

In a large serving bowl, combine watermelon, cucumber, feta, red onion, and mint. Pour over dressing, tossing to combine.

Garnish with more mint and flaky sea salt.

Additional Tips

If you're not a fan of feta, fresh mozzarella balls or goat cheese would work, too. To take some of the bite out of red onions, soak the slices in water for about 15 minutes.
