Cucumber-Melon & Feta Salad

A fresh spin on the classic Greek salad.

Are you craving fresh and juicy salads but are looking for something off the beaten track? My cucumber-melon salad has not one lettuce leaf in the mix; rather, it’s packed with three different types of melons, plus cucumber and feta cheese. Think of this salad as the cousin of the Greek chopped salad. This tastes great on its own, or you can serve it on the side with your favourite grilled meats.

Cucumber-Melon & Feta Salad


Juice of 2-3 limes

¼ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 medium English cucumber, halved, and cut into ribbons

1 cup honeydew melon, cubed

1 cup cantaloupe, cubed

1 cup watermelon, cubed

½ cup cilantro, roughly chopped

½ cup mint leaves, roughly chopped

½ cup crumbled feta cheese

Salt and pepper to taste



Place all of the ingredients into a bowl.

Gently toss until combined.

Serve immediately.
