Refreshing Watermelon Salad Recipe

Sweet, salty, and zesty, this salad is bursting with flavour. Ideal for Summer days, it can also be made all year long to accompany grilled food.

Level: Beginner


  • Prep time: 10 -15 minutes
  • Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serving:  3 – 4 servings


For the salad:

  • 1 half of seedless watermelon - cut into cubes
  • 1 medium English cucumber - cut into cubes
  • 120g fresh feta cheese
  • 10g torn mint

For the vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


Step 1: Place the watermelon, cucumber, and mint in a large bowl.

Step 2: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, maple syrup, lime juice, salt and pepper. Drizzle half of the vinaigrette over the salad mixture and toss to coat.

Step3: Top it up with crumbled feta, and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Garnish with mint and flaky sea salt.

Serve this quintessential summer salad immediately to enjoy its freshness.


Tips: enhance the texture of your salad by grilling the watermelon with the Haden MultiPro Grill & Air Fryer.  This will allow the flavours to concentrate—caramelising the sugars and picking up some smokiness from the grill.
