Watermelon, Feta & Cucumber Salad

Adding chunks of juicy watermelon to a classic Greek salad mix makes it extra refreshing on hot summer days. The sweet melon, salty feta and crisp salad veg make a refreshing mix that's perfect by itself and delicious served as part of a meze dinner.


  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 mini watermelon, chilled
  • 125g cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber, chilled
  • A handful of Kalamata olives
  • 2 tsp capers, drained
  • 100g feta
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Remember the olives still have their stones in, so keep a bowl handy for people to put the stones in while they're eating the salad.

1. Peel and finely slice half a red onion. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar and olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the onion to the bowl and toss to mix. Set aside for 10 mins to soak. This will help take the raw edge off the onion.
2. Slice the skin off the watermelon half and flick out any large seeds. Chop the watermelon into bite-sized chunks and place them on top of the onion, but don't mix them together just yet.
3. Quarter the cherry tomatoes and roughly chop the cucumber. Add them to the bowl too. Tip in the Kalamata olives and capers. When the onion has soaked for 10 mins, toss everything to mix and coat all the fruit and veg in the dressing.
4. Pile the salad up on small serving plates or a large platter. Crumble over the feta, sprinkle over the dried oregano and serve.
