Watermelon, Cucumber and Blueberry Salad

It’s getting to be the time of year when I switch from wanting warm, hearty comfort food dinners, to craving something light, cool and easy.  This refreshing watermelon, cucumber and blueberry salad is a perfect option for those hot summer nights!  With temperatures already climbing into the upper 90’s here in Southern California, I have a feeling it’s going to be a long summer!

Blueberry Salad

This recipe is so simple and I love how flexible it is too. There are only a few ingredients.  You can use it as a salad for dinner, or cut the fruit into smaller pieces to use it as a side dish or fruit salsa!  It would be lovely over grilled fish or even served with cinnamon tortilla chips as a light appetizer.   Isn’t it great when things come together like that?

Are you hungry yet?  I am!

Watermelon, Cucumber and Blueberry Salad

Don’t store the cheese and fruit together or the cheese will get soft and melt into the fruit mixture. Keep them separate and combine only when ready to serve.

  • 2 cups diced seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 10 mint leaves, julienned
  • juice and zest from two limes
  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese

Toss the watermelon, cucumber and blueberries together in a large bowl. Add mint leaves, lime zest and juice. Stir gently to combine. Chill at least 30 minutes. Serve fruit mixture topped with a sprinkling of feta cheese.
