I love watermelon salads like this Watermelon Caprese. It’s that salty-sweet combination that’s so good and will keep you cool as a cucumber during those dog days of summer.

This is the ONLY salad I want in the summer when it’s hot outside. During those sultry summer months, I usually make my Watermelon salad with arugula, feta and red onion, but I love this new combination with cucumber, mint and olives as an alternative. It comes together very quick and is perfect as a light lunch or side dish.

Double this for a crowd, or cut it in half if you want to serve two. This makes a great side dish to grilled chicken, or seafood.

  1. Absolutely fantastic! I didn’t have balsamic glaze, so I simmered some balsamic vinegar and that worked well. Used fresh basil instead of mint as it was what we had on hand. So good!

  2. This is so good! I even managed to get the Balsamic reduction sauce right. Delicious summer salad!

  3. Surprise, Surprise, surprise, had all the ingredients except the olives. The salad came together very quickly. I was looking for something different for lunch, Instead of the mint I used basil paste and in [lace of the olives I used diced red onions. Salad was delish. I will be making this salad for lunch quite often.

  4. Today was an awfully hot day here in Vienna and this recipe was just perfectly refreshing. I was surprised how delicious the watermelon tastes with the olives and feta cheese! And so simple and quick to make. I'll definitely make it again 🙂

  5. My new favorite summer salad!!

  6. I had this at a restaurant similar but they put caramel popcorn few pieces in was soooo good could use a low fat caramel popcorn I'm so gonna do this yummy lol

  7. I can't wait to try this. Had almost the same thing in a restaurant except they used pesto in it, I don't think there was balsamic because of that but if was delicious!

  8. yum! i am so in the mood for this right now. off to find me a watermelon!

  9. This was just wonderful. I added in little raspberry balsamic by mistake but it was great.

  10. made this tonight! super yummy! instead of the glaze i just used regular balsamic vinegar , and i didn't add the mint. It was great, Thanks for posting, as I would have never tried this combination otherwise

  11. This salad looks delicious, and so cooling.

  12. This looks delicious! I had a really flavoursome watermelon and chevre salad in Paris on the weekend. I think the watermelon had been infused with chilli and basil, it was really tasty!

  13. Yummy – this looks delish. I love feta and watermelon together, nom!

  14. Made this yesterday…It was soooooo good! My husband said, I would never have ordered anything like this out because of the combo but it's delicious. 🙂 I used black olives and kirby cukes (since that's what I'm growing in my garden) and took the seeds out.(Just slice in half and scoop out) And made my own balsamic glaze. 1 cup of balsamic vinegar to 1/4 cup brown sugar (I used brown sugar splenda). bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 mins. Making this again tonight as a side! 😉
