Best Watermelon and Feta Salad for Summer

|

Summertime we love delicious salads for lunch or with our dinner. Today, I am sharing my best watermelon and feta salad for summer.

What I love about this watermelon and feta salad? It is so refreshing and delicious, especially on a hot summer day. It combines the crunchiness of Arugula with the combination of fresh watermelon, feta, herbs from the garden (optional) and balsamic vinegar or your favorite dressing.

This salad can be eaten alone or paired with your favorite chicken dish. If you are not a fan of Arugula, no worries. You can switch it out with a spring lettuce mix.

The watermelon is the star of the show. It is important that you select a watermelon that is ripe and in season. For my watermelon and feta salad, I make it when watermelons are in season. I prefer the seedless ones. You can buy the watermelons with the seeds. It does require a little more work by removing the seeds when cubing the melon.

Not only is this watermelon and feta salad delicious and refreshing, but it is also simple to make with a few ingredients. This salad is perfect for entertaining by the pool or summer picnics.

A salad is a wonderful option compared to heavier meals, which can be less appealing in hot weather. The high-water content in many summer vegetables adds to this refreshing quality.

Salads are generally quick and simple to prepare, which is a big plus when the summer heat makes you want to spend less time in the kitchen. Plus, salads packed with fruits and veggies are a great way to get essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
