  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves

Watermelon Salad

  • 6 cups seedless 1-inch cubes watermelon (from 5-lb watermelon)
  • 1 cup sliced quartered cucumber
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced and quartered
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 2
    In large bowl, mix watermelon, cucumber, onion and 3/4 cup of the feta cheese.
  • 3
    Pour dressing over watermelon mixture; toss gently to combine.
  • 4
    Sprinkle salad with remaining feta cheese. Garnish servings with additional mint, if desired.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try adding other additions to your watermelon cucumber salad, such as blueberries, strawberries or kalamata olives.
  • tip 2
    The salad can be chilled for up to 2 hours. The watermelon keeps releasing its juices so the longer it stands, the more liquid will gather in your bowl.
  • tip 3
    For the prettiest presentation, instead of using pre-crumbled feta cheese, purchase a block of feta cheese and break it into larger chunks.
