Sweet, salty, and refreshing salad with a little bite.
Sweet, salty, and refreshing salad with a little bite.
This a great combination of flavors. Very refreshing. A friend of mine served me a version of this; she had added toasted pine nuts and some fresh mint. Delicious! I made it for my family last night and they loved it!
8-8-11: This got a rave from Ann.
Delicious! I can't resist adding seeds to most salads...roasted sunflower seeds complement this very nicely.
I've recently served this salad at two separate picnics. It was a huge hit, even with those folks who "don't like salad". I wound up sending this recipe to a dozen folks who wanted to recreate this easy & delicious dish. First rate.
This salad is amazing! What wonderful flavours. I can't count the number of times I've made this over the summer both at home at at friends' homes for potluck. It's a hit every time! Making it again tonight for dinner. Can hardly wait!
Outstanding salad. Easy to make and everyone loves this salad!!
Really good. We added shredded chicken and walnuts and it made a great summer meal.
It has a very mild, but refreshing flavor. My husband and I liked it very much and I'll keep it as a summer favorite when I'm wanting to change up the pace a little. I wondered about adding fresh mint to it and plan to try it next time I make it.
Fabulous! I didn't have to add thing to it -- and I ALWAYS add something to a recipe. I've never seen my husband ooh and aah over a SALAD, but he did with this one. This has become our forever "go to" salad. Thank you, thank you, BamaHaole!
I had made it and it was absolutely delicious. The watermelon sure is a refreshing touch, and I've always been a fan of arugula. Added boiled, unsalted chicken breast as a filler.
Loved this refreshingly different salad, though I added less oil and more vinegar for the dressing.
This is currently our favorite salad. We have it probably once a week, if watermelon is available. I hope we never get tired of it from eating it too often.
I thought it was good, but it really needed some texture to it, some crunch. I added some toasted almonds, maybe some croutons would work?
I love this salad, I made it with butter lettuce, and raspberry vinaigrette, no onion, [made with ing. I had] lite, refreshing....used cashews for crunch....I like the idea of s. flower seeds, as one poster did....
Perfect sweet and savory salad. The arugala provides the perfect hint of pepper. I only had the red basalmic but doubt it made a huge difference. I also added toasted pecans that added another level of crunch. Delish!
Watermelon is a good addition to the salad, but there was too much onion.
I just found my go to salad for the summer. Fantastic! I just used baby arugula and regular balsamic vinegar. Quick and easy and very kid friendly. My 5 year old loved it!
Great! Surprised even my salad "haters'!!!
Simple and delicious! Perfect for a picnic or a brunch. Very refreshing, good combination of ingredients and flexible to add others if you are so inclined.
What a fun summer recipe! Yummy combination of crowd pleasing flavors...and easy too!
Took this salad to a potluck and everyone raved about the flavors and the dressing - and it was super easy! I followed the recipe but didn't measure the veggies or watermelon. Turned out great :)
The salad is excellent but I suggest you either make it by servings or eat it all up the first day because after the first day the greens in the salad are limp and wilted.
I thought this salad was o.k. but my family didn't care for it. We didn't really care for the dressing.
Lots of summer flavor. Don't mix together until you are ready to eat. It doesn't last long, so don't make extras. (It gets very watery.)
I used only half the onion and that was plenty. Husband and daughter loved it. Dressing is just the right amount, not too much like in many salad recipes.
I made this for the ladies tennis teams. I didn't take any home it was very good.
I added cucumbers, mint, and toasted almonds and held the onion. Made the dressing with white jalapeno lime balsamic vinegar from Olive and Grape. Go light on the olive oil as it's not needed. My guests loved the final salad!
We always enjoy this with in season watermelon. I don't add oil. I see no need for the extra calories
This did the trick for watermelon feta salad. There are a lot to choose from. Did not have arugula so I just used Romain. Added a little fresh mint. Rinsed the onions, but not sure if that was necessary. I just didn’t want over powering onion flavor.
I thought this was a refreshing salad for a hot summer day.
My family love coming it! I will make it again!
Really delicious combination of flavors. Of course I love every ingredient in it. Made as is except added extra feta but used low fat feta.
Love a savory watermelon salad!
This was a good lunch campaign. I used Italian Salad Dressing, and I added some pineapple chunks and Honey Roasted Almonds with Cranberries.
What a perfect summer salad. We loved this as written.
Skipped the onion and added chopped fresh mint, Delicious!
I have always wanted to try and make a watermelon feta salad and this recipe does not disappoint!
Everyone loves this easy recipe!! Great during summer watermelon season!!
Really good. I did not have white balsamic vinegar so I used white wine vinegar and a pinch of sugar as a substitute. I would make this again.
loved it but I used spinach only, not an arugula fan
I made this tonight for dinner. Didn't have any leftovers as I ate the whole thing! Delish!
I went light on the onions and sliced very thin with mandiline. Also only had quarter cup of grape tomatoes on hand. Doubled the amount of watermelon. My book club loved it.
So delish! I sauteed the onions till they were soft but otherwise followed the recipe. So juicy and light, with the counterpoint of the cheese.. Such great flavors and textures really balance each other well.
This is an easy salad to put together. The watermelon adds a nice and refreshing taste. Everyone loved it.
Refreshing and easy!
Toss in some seasoned sliced almonds for fun and flavor
Delicious & easy to make, especially if you prep in advance. I tossed in 2 ears of roasted corn cut off the cob & put some cut red onion to the side for those in my household who prefer it.
This salad was very tasty! The only thing I would change is to add less feta cheese and more tomatoes.
Used all baby spinach instead of arugula-Everybody loved it and wanted more!-
So easy to make and delicious! Tastes like summer.
