I love summer for a million different reasons, but all the fresh produce has to be at the top of my list. Watermelon is my all time favourite summer treat, with corn coming in a close second. While my kids love watermelon simply cut into wedges, I am always trying to think of new ways to serve watermelon to adults.

HOW DO YOU MAKE WATERMELON SALAD?

For this recipe, you’ll need cubed watermelon, sliced cucumbers, crumbled feta cheese and dill. A simple lime dressing goes over the top of the salad and everything is tossed together for a fresh and colourful dish. The sweet watermelon with the salty feta is a flavour pairing that may sound unconventional, but it truly is amazing.

Just as a heads up, it can be temping to buy the pre-crumbled feta because it’s more easily available and ready to just dump into a salad. However, the blocks of feta are much more flavourful even if they take a touch more work to crumble up before adding to the dish. With this watermelon cucumber salad, any type of cucumber is fine. For the dill use one teaspoon of dried dill for every tablespoon of fresh dill.
