Watermelon Greek salad is a refreshing and healthy summer salad that combines the sweetness of watermelon and the savory flavors of traditional Greek salad.

This salad includes seedless watermelon, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese, kalamata olives, and lots of fresh herbs tossed in a tangy mix of olive oil and red wine vinegar.

The best part about this recipe is the sweet watermelon paired with the salty feta and olives.

Plus, it’s packed full of nutrients like vitamins A and C!

Ingredients for Watermelon Greek Salad

  • Watermelon – Use seedless watermelon for the easiest option.
  • Cucumbers – I like to use a nice thin-skinned cucumber like an English cucumber or a Persian cucumber.
  • Feta cheese – The perfect salty addition.
  • Black olives – I used kalamata olives for the best taste. Just be careful to warn eaters if the olives come with pits.
  • Fresh mint – A light and refreshing addition that goes great with watermelon.
  • Fresh parsley – Refreshing and light in flavor that goes great in this sweet and savory salad.
  • Red onion – The perfect little bite for this summer salad.
  • Olive oil – This is the base of our dressing for this salad.
  • Red wine vinegar – The vinegar gives the dressing an extra punch.
  • Kosher salt – Added for flavor!
  • Black pepper – Add as much or as little as you want!
