Greek Watermelon Salad with Feta Cheese and Olives

Watermelon Salad with Feta Cheese and OlivesThe simplest salad of all presented at LA Greekfest’s cooking class: Watermelon Salad with Feta Cheese and Olives. Just those three ingredients, no dressing.

  • Slices of watermelon, chilled
  • Feta cheese in bite size pieces
  • Black olives, Kalamata or others, pits removed, sliced

Remove rind and seeds from melon.  Cut into triangular pieces.  Place on a serving platter, add Feta cheese and olives.  Chill at least 1/2 hour before serving.

(But we didn’t wait the half hour.  Class participants launched into a buffet of samples from the presentation.)

This Greek Watermelon salad looks so beautiful and it’s so incredibly simple! We have a Greek Fest at one of our local churches each year and I saw a similar salad, but this one looks so much more colorful. I don’t think I can get watermelon anymore this time of year, but I will be sure to bookmark this recipe so next summer I’ll be ready!

I’m so glad you didn’t try to use those seedless watermelons. It’s worth removing the seeds to get the flavor. Have you noticed that those seedless watermelons that are all the rage right now don’t have the same flavor?

Thanks for the glorious pictures and great recipe. I am really a fan of your site and hope to spend some more time scrolling around soon.
