RECIPE NOTES

  1. I used watermelon with seeds for this recipe, but this recipe would be a lot easier when you use seedless watermelon. Then you don't have to remove the seeds from it.
  2. I used freshly chopped mint leaves for that herby touch. You can also swap the fresh mint with basil leaves. Or you could use the combination of both herbs.
  3. If you have cut watermelon in advance, and it has released too much juice, then discard the juice before making the salad.
  4. Make sure to use chilled watermelon and cucumbers in this salad. This watermelon salad tastes great when served chilled.
  5. I cut my watermelon into cubes because this way it is faster and easier to cut. But if you want to go fancier, then use a melon baller.
  6. If you dont want to use balsamic vinegar, then simply substitute it with fresh lime juice or lemon juice.
  7. Adding honey to the dressing is optional. So if desired, you can omit it.
  8. Don?t buy pre-crumbled feta cheese. Always buy blocks of feta cheese for making salad, because they taste more fresh and flavorful.
  9. You can also add avocado, fresh arugula to this watermelon salad.
