Step 1 Gently mix watermelon, cucumbers, and mint in a large bowl. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Drizzle over salad and gently toss to coat. Directions Soak 1/2 thinly sliced red onion in cold water.

Pat dry 4 cups diced watermelon and 1 seeded and sliced cucumber; toss with a handful of thinly. Mix red onion with lime juice in a bowl; set side to marinate at least 10 minutes. Stir olive oil into mixture.

Step 2 Toss watermelon, baby cucumbers, and feta cheese together in a large bowl. This watermelon cucumber salad is a refreshing addition to any meal. The colorful and flavor-packed blend of watermelon chunks and cucumber slices in this salad will keep you cool, even on the hottest days.. Easy and Refreshing Summer Salad.

Watermelon Cucumber salad is the perfect summer appetizer recipe to serve to guests. This bbq side dish captures the very essence of summer bringing in only light flavors while packing in lots of crunch! There are a few different ways you can make this recipe and I actually like them all. How I end up serving it depends on what I have on hand.

Step 1 In a large bowl, toss cucumber and watermelon with lime juice, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Whisk vinegar, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl; gradually whisk in oil until completely incorporated. Step 2 Combine watermelon, cucumber, feta and.

Make-Ahead: If you need to make this watermelon salad ahead of time, you can peel and cube the watermelon and cucumber and prepare the remaining ingredients, then store each in the fridge in separate containers. Add the dressing and mix the salad together just a few minutes before serving. Cucumbers add a welcome crunch to this refreshing summer salad of cubed watermelon, fresh herbs, and crumbled feta cheese. You can replace the fresh mint with basil if you prefer, or use a combination of both herbs.

A personal-sized seedless watermelon is just the right size for this salad, but you can also use pre-cut melon or a portion of a larger watermelon. In a large bowl, combine watermelon, cucumbers, green onions and mint. In a small bowl, whisk remaining ingredients. Pour over salad and toss to coat.

Serve.

  • Yum Linda looks delicious. This is one I’m trying for sure. Can you make a fennel, onion, tomato and cucumber salad please with a light salad dressing. I love fennel.

  • Watermelon/grapes & feta cheese is a tradional combination during Greek summer. Plus broken barley rusk bites drizzled with exra virgin olive oil into such a salad bowl.
    Some alternatives that I’d add into this summer salad pallete of yours: lemon juice-cured olives, crispy purslane leaves, mild salty caper berries along with thin slices of a juicy red onion would give a strong mediterranean air.
    Many thanx for your cooling proposal.

  • Great Video. Very nice recipe for healthy cucumber salad. I made my own and was wondering how other people are prepping this wonderful vegetable. Please check out my other recipes when you have time.

  • I worked for a beekeeper one summer in Manitoba. The honey was incredible. I’m jealous. I went to the Parkdale Market here in Ottawa and got some amazing cucumbers, but I don’t have anything else to make this salad. I’ll have to have my old standby chickpea salad, with added cucumbers.

  • yea you’re right. i suppose that where i am from we are fond of fresh coconut and it is added to the fruit salad but it depends what part of mexico and also pineapple:) and we wouldn’t use grapes. and all the times i have gone to mexico they don’t use that type of chili powder. I think its a nice way to get other people to try this type of fruit salad where its not available as it would be in mexico.

  • Didn’t know you could pickle the rind. We always left the rind out in the garden. The butterflies would swarm it and what was left would break down and nourish the soil.

  • you guys are wasting so much fruit! the way you cut the skin off the fruits is just wasteful ): there’s so many leftovers on the skin you’ve sliced off….. maybe try a diff way to cut them & be conservative?

  • Best thing about Glen&Friends is that he puts the recipe down in the description box. No need to click links to see recipe. Simplicity has won over my heart and stomach. Fav cooking channel ❤️

  • I live in SoCal and they sell these everywhere in carts! You really should try it its great. Tbh food like this is always so great because it originated in poor areas, where they buy inexpensive ingredients but know how to get amazing flavors out of it. I’ve never tried jicama before though.

  • I really enjoy this lady. I feel like in her first few videos she sounded a bit monotone but that was probably because she’d never done it before and she was nervous. I think she’s great now. I actually find her voice quite calming.

  • My recipe of this fabulous salad calls for sliced red onion not cucumber. And the dressing is red wine vinegar with oil and sugar. Very tasty.

  • I made this salad at home because I had had the feta and watermelon mixture before and I thought it would be awesome. It is awesome indeed. I also added my own twist and added some green grapes to mine. Goes really well with it. Nice idea Glen. This is something a lot of us can execute at home easily.

  • Watermelon season is my favorite season. I don’t even care that eating watermelon makes me get up multiple times a night to pee. I love it so.

  • Looks great! My wife’s birthday is coming up next month. She would loves this! I will add this to the menu for her birthday dinner. Thanks so much!

  • You can’t go wrong with a Wusthof knife:) You can check Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma.After Christmas they usually have good sales on them too:)

  • Around here watermelon salad is Cucumber, cut up
    Watermelon, peeled, cut into cubes Cucumber, cut up
    ½ cup crumbled feta cheese and one sweet onion cut thin, sometimes a half cup of strawberries

  • I find it SO INTERESTING that cucumbers and watermelons are related! They are two of the only foods that I don’t enjoy and I never considered them being from the same family. With that information, it makes total sense as there are distinct flavor similarities in the two. Thanks for the info, and another excellent video!

  • I haven’t had watermelon rind pickles in years! My husband’s grandmother used to make them. They are so tasty. I never got the recipe from her. I’ll be interested to see yours!

  • To those who plan to try this recipe… or just whenever you eat watermelons, Please wash the surface before you cut watermelon if you’re not going to consume the whole watermelon in one day. The bacteria and other pathogenic organisms thrive on the surface of watermelon and all fruits for that matter. If you slice through your watermelon without washing, the knife will inoculate those organisms over the cut surface of your melon! Unless you want your melon to be a Petri dish, do yourself a favor by washing the surface of melons with detergent! As a microbiologist, things like this make me cringe.

  • I also like Trechas Spicy Powder.. it’s Salt, Citric Acid, Guajillo peppers, sugar and lime juice in a shakable powder… it’s addictive as hades! It’s not hot spicy at all.

  • I make this salad in the summer. I add Kalamata olives, red onion, and i use lemon instead of lime. Basically I make a Greek salad substituting watermelon for the lettuce.

  • Other than your wonderful recipes….I think my favorite thing is that you don’t belabor anything by “making” us watch every single little step start to finish. Good on you!

  • Didn’t know you could pickle the rind. We always left the rind out in the garden. The butterflies would swarm it and what was left would break down and nourish the soil.

  • Thank you for this recipeGreat for raw vegans:) Could you please tell me what kind of chefs’ knife do you use? Like which brand and where to buy it from. thank you

  • Cucumber and melon together……wow, I have never tried this before! Sounds like an awesome salad to make this week-end with my family…….thanks test kitchen:)

  • Thank you for making these videos!

    I find it hard finding good videos on interesting vegetarian dishes, and I love when you make vegetarian accommodating dishes here. I’d personally love it if you made more of this type of recipe, and I’m sure there are many in the same boat as me.

    Thanks again for all the cooking and baking inspiration!

  • Im not Mexican. But I am offended that you would call it a L.A. freeway salad. I am from L.A. and I know that you can buy this fruit salad from Latin street vendors, but no need to associate Mexicans with the freeway. JMHO.

  • I’m not a fan of feta wondering what would make a good substitute. I’m guessing the saltiness of the feta is important here. Maybe a bit of aged crumbly cheddar?

  • This salad looks THE BOMB! Plus, there is just something sexy and chic about it. I think this would pair up so well with grilled shrimp skewers and orzo feta kalamata salad as an additional side dish. I’m inspired for a dinner party now.:)

  • Cucumber and melon together……wow, I have never tried this before! Sounds like an awesome salad to make this week-end with my family…….thanks test kitchen:)

  • I grow white cucumbers and picklers, I don’t bother with the big green slicing cucumbers anymore except for the middle-eastern varieties.

  • Looks great! My wife’s birthday is coming up next month. She would loves this! I will add this to the menu for her birthday dinner. Thanks so much!

  • Glen, may I make a suggestion…look up something called watermelon konfyt on a South African recipe site. I think you will like it. Best eaten on fresh, white bread.

  • watermelon and cucumbers are great detoxifiers/diuretics.  onions are good anti-inflammatories.  looks so refreshing!  too  much salt in our diets.

  • I’ve had watermelon-honey dew-cantaloupe salad before and it was VERY GOOD. I’d never heard of adding cucumber and olive oil. I will try it.

  • Very nice, Linda!:-)… good tip about scoring the cucumber with a fork… always wondered how they did that!… *lol*

    Give Sage a pat for me, and thumbs up as always!:-) Joe

  • I kind of want to stab you every time you use the British pronunciation of “basil” instead of the American one. It’s like how some people from the American Northeast pronounce “water” as “wooder” or how some people from the Pacific Northwest pronounce”Wash-ing-ton” as “Woor-shing-ton”. It’s pedantic I know, but some word pronunciations like that kind of bug me irrationally (I know that both pronunciations of basil are correct)

  • Great Video. Very nice recipe for healthy cucumber salad. I made my own and was wondering how other people are prepping this wonderful vegetable. Please check out my other recipes when you have time.

  • That really looks like a nice recipe
    And of course we need to taste to see if we need anything else
    However you use a spoon and put it back into the bowl that is called cross-contamination

  • You were reading my mind! I am up to my neck in cucumbers and trying to figure out a new way to use them. I’m buying a watermelon tomorrow and making your salad:) Thank you so, so much! Have a great weekend:)

  • Best thing about Glen&Friends is that he puts the recipe down in the description box. No need to click links to see recipe. Simplicity has won over my heart and stomach. Fav cooking channel ❤️

  • Wow, the first recipe you’ve posted that, well, to me doesn’t seem that appetizing. Not crazy about Watermelon #1 and Cucumbers, I could take ’em or leave ’em. I had pickled Watermelon rind once in the deep south and they can keep it down there ha ha. My 1st negative comment

  • Thank you, a wonderful salad! But think next time I may add (as suggested elsewhere) a bit of onion. Or maybe even chives. Would also like to thank and congratulate you on the proper pronunciation of the aromatic herb ‘basil’ ( baz il ). Sorry, but a real pet peeve I have, is people saying basal ( baze il ), which actually is a part of anatomy. Thanks again.

  • at face value i thought Watermelon Salad was going to be gross but after watching you make the Salad, it sounds pretty nice going give it a try.

  • She talks fine. If you’re bothered enough to leave a comment about it, then you should’ve had enough sense to switch off the video and watch something else. Problem solved.

  • OMGosh I should know not to watch a Linda video before bed when I’m hungry…. this looks great but watermelons here wont be good for another month really…but definitely a keeper

  • Watermelon Salad is my favourite summer dish period. I’m not a huge fan of the basil so we leave that out and the dressing is usually just canola oil with salt and pepper but I’m going to try the lime and honey dressing next time we make it because that sounds like an amazing accompaniment to an amazing dish.

    Seriously or anyone who hasn’t tried it you definitely should. It’s fast and tastes amazing on a hot summer day.
