This watermelon salad could not be more refreshing! It pairs sweet melon with salty feta, cucumber, fresh basil and lemon zest.

  • 8 cups cubed ripe seedless watermelon (1 8-pound watermelon)
  • 2 organic mini cucumbers or 1/2 English cucumber (1 cup sliced)
  • 2 ounces Happy Farms Preferred Original Feta
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 4 basil leaves
  • Sea salt, for garnish
  • Suggested pairing: La Rue Côtes de Provence Rosé (available at ALDI)


  1. Chop the watermelon into cubes. Slice the cucumbers (if using an English cucumber, slice it into half moons). Chop the basil. Zest the lemon.
  2. Arrange the watermelon and cucumbers on a platter. Sprinkle with feta crumbles, lemon zest, and sea salt. Taste and adjust flavors as desired. (If you’d like, you can add freshly ground black pepper or a drizzle of olive oil.) Serve immediately. If making ahead, refrigerate the cubed watermelon separately: it releases a lot of water after it is cut. Then assemble the salad directly before serving.
