This healthy recipe for watermelon cucumber and feta salad is a summer favorite! It's a refreshing salad with a zesty dressing that uses feta cheese. I love to make this side dish the day before so it's cold and ready to serve.



1 small Seedless Watermelon, rind removed and cubed (about 6 cups)
2 English Cucumbers, peeled and chopped
2 cups crumbled Feta Cheese
1 small Shallot, finely diced
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Lemon Zest
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper


In a large serving bowl combine the cubed watermelon, chopped cucumber, feta cheese and finely diced shallot.

In a small bowl or pint jar add the apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

Pour the dressing over the watermelon mixture. Stir to combine.

Refrigerate for 1 hour and serve cold.
