Mmmmm! If you’re into simple recipes – this one’s SUPER quick and delicious. It’s become my favourite salad of the summer and it only takes 10-15 minutes to make.
All you need are 4 simple ingredients:
- Watermelon (6 cups)
- Feta Cheese (4 ounces – or adjust to taste)
- Balsamic Vinegar (1/4 cup)
- Mint (1/4 cup – or adjust to taste)
*We also added in blueberries – but this is optional. It still tastes fabulous without it! **For dairy allergies – you can omit the cheese (it will altar the taste of the recipe – but it will ensure you’re not sensitive to the recipe when you’re eating it) 🙂
- First we’ll need to make the balsamic reduction, which is simple: add balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil until thick and reduced, about 4-5 minutes (this s to help thicken it).
- Cut the watermelon into cubes and place it into a mixing bowl.
- Add sliced/crumbled feta cheese and mint over the watermelon
- Drizzle the balsamic reduction and it’s ready to be served!
Make sure your watermelon has been chilled in the fridge, as it always tastes better that way!
The thickened balsamic reduction works so well with the refreshing, cold watermelon, the creamy feta cheese crumbles, and mint leaves that it’s so simple yet refreshing on a hot day!

i’m confused about this recipe since it includes Feta Cheese. Is this nit something that needs to be eliminated during the Elimination Diet?
Hi – you’ll notice that these are not all elimination diet recipes. I made a note in the post that: “For dairy allergies – you can omit the cheese (it will altar the taste of the recipe – but it will ensure you’re not sensitive to the recipe when you’re eating it)”
