Day 11 Cheesemas Watermelon, Fetta & Mint Salad

This refreshing salad is one that surprises guests a lot, watermelon? In salad? Our answer? Why not! Summer is the prefect time to be taking advantage of some of the devious summer fruits available on offer and this combination add some bursts of summer sweetness to our Christmas lunch, it’s another old favourite of ours. Enjoy!


  • 8 cups watermelon, diced into cubes
  • 1 cup  feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 small  red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


In a bowl, whisk the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the watermelon, fetta and onion and toss gently. Garnish with the mint and serve chilled.

Hint: Experiment with different flavoured fetta’s. Chilli fetta works beautifully in the dish. Only one day left of our 12days of Cheesemas! Stay tuned for one fabulous dessert.
