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.

    What is the difference between the cucumbers? What is an English cucumber? I am kind of old but don't know what is the difference and this recipe sounds so good I want to try it. Thanks

    This sounds amazing! I have everything to make this tonight!! 🙂 I usually do a watermelon, basil, kalamata olive salad with grilled haloumi cheese and a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice-I love the salty sweet goodness!

    Can't wait to make this one!!

    I have about sixteen little watermelons in the garden – this is on the list as soon as I have a ripe one or two!

  4. Balsamic Glaze
    INGREDIENTS

    2 1/4 cups balsamic vinegar

    1/4 teaspoon honey (optional)

    Pinch of coarse salt
    STEP 1
    Bring vinegar to a boil in a small heavy saucepan; reduce to a simmer, and cook until thickened and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in honey (if desired) and salt. Let cool completely before serving (glaze will thicken slightly as it cools).

    They sell it in the store next to the vinegars, I see it everywhere now but if you can't find it, you can simmer balsamic vinegar on the stove until it reduces and thickens.

    Yummers!! Just can't wait for all the rain to stop here in Florida and try a nice cool refreshing watermelon cucumber salad 🙂

  7. I cannot wait to try this – I can actually put a whole watermelon away myself, and the combo with the feta has me almost giddy with anticipation.

  8. Yumm…… exactly what I was looking for! I'm in NY also….and these 90 degree days are way too hot for me to think about cooking. Thanks..I love your blog:)

  9. About the balsamic glaze, I just bought some balsamic vinegar, and it had a free sample packet of balsamic 'glaze' attached. Apparently you can buy it. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like something I would definitely like! I also found a recipe online and it consists of cooking balsamic vinegar and brown sugar.

  10. You can either make your own by reducing balsamic on the stove top until it thickens or you can buy it. Most full service grocery stores have it in the same section as balsamic/vinegar/oils.

    I was wondering what the balsamic glaze is also. I looked under dressings and there is no recipe search button that I can see. Thanks.

  12. I have tried water melon plus mint and water melon plus feta but never all 3 together! Gotta try it out. Yes, the weather is getting ridiculously hot where I live too.

      It's basically a balsamic reduction, they sell it next to the balsamic vinegar, or you can make it yourself. I buy mine in Trader Joe's but I see it everywhere.

      ME TOO; balsamic glaze (I think it maybe reducing balsamic on the stove top until it thickens by half) I could be wrong :~) =^..^=

    3. Yes, I work in a kitchen as a chef De Partie… All you do is take balsamic vinegar, and put it on med heat, stirring occassionally, until the vinegar "reduces" by about 50%…. so if you need a cup of finished dressing, heat up 2c…. it will get sweeter as it reduces, so watch and taste it till you love it!
