Watermelon Feta Salad is a healthy and cooling Mediterranean summertime salad. It is made by tossing chilled and juicy watermelon cubes, onions, feta cheese and mint leaves in a zesty dressing.

The combination of salty feta cheese with sweet watermelons imparts a unique flavor to this salad. The addition of onions gives it a distinctive bite.

Seasoning the salad with refreshing mint leaves, tangy lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper make it irresistibly refreshing during the hot summers.

You can substitute feta cheese with any goat cheese. If you cannot find it you can use paneer instead or skip adding the cheese altogether.
