Watermelon Feta Salad

Watermelon Feta Salad

This Watermelon Feta Salad has just 4 ingredients and is the perfect refreshing summer salad! I love a salty-sweet flavor pairing, so the bright, sweet watermelon paired with creamy, salty Feta cheese, fresh basil, and tangy balsamic glaze is such a satisfying combination. This salad is so easy to toss together for lunch, a side dish or a snack and it’s super simple to make more servings for a crowd. Not only is this Watermelon Feta Salad easy to make for yourself, it would be perfect to make in a large quantity for a summer picnic or cookout. Everyone loves fruit and cheese! Plus it’s only 133 calories per serving or 3 WW Points (or 5 Points if following the diabetic WW plan). To view your current WW Points for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site, click here!

Watermelon Feta Salad

This Watermelon Feta Salad uses just 4 ingredients for a refreshing summer salad!


  • 6 oz watermelon, cubed (I prefer it to also be chilled)
  • A pinch of salt, optional
  • 1 oz Feta cheese, crumbled or cubed
  • 1-2 teaspoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze, I used Wegmans brand but Bertolli, Gia Russa, Delallo, Trader Joe’s and many other brands sell pre-made balsamic glaze in a squirt bottle


  • Sprinkle the watermelon with a pinch of salt, if using. Toss the watermelon, feta and sliced basil together and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.

  1. After having a watermelon salad at a nice restaurant a few days ago I decided to see if I could find an actual recipe for one. Thank you! Yours is very similar. I haven’t made it yet, but I’ll just comment (in case someone think the add-ons sound good, that the restaurant also added some field greens, red onions, kalamata olives, and pistachios.. They also dressed it in a white balsamic vinaigrette instead of the lime and olive oil.

  2. I tried this but i grilled the watermelon and it tasted sooooo good!
