Summer in a bowl! My Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe is the perfect recipe for the season.
I love adding fruit to my meals this time of year! Whether it's a Grilled Peach Caprese Salad or a Watermelon Blueberry and Feta Salad eating fruit for more than just a snack is so perfect for summer. Plus if you haven't tried adding some sort of cheese to the mix with dishes like this you are missing out. The salty and rich cheese pairs perfectly with sweet fruit. Plus in my world you can NEVER go wrong with a little bit of feta.
My Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe is literally the BEST of summer in a bowl. Refreshingly sweet watermelon, plump juicy strawberries and crispy cucumbers are all in prime season right now and are the unexpected combo and stars of this dish. They look so pretty together AND taste amazing too.
Don't you just want to grab that bite off the top???
Why you'll love my Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe...
This salad would be tasty with just the cucumber, watermelon and strawberry BUT I couldn't stop there. What really makes this salad memorable is the squeeze of lime on top, fresh mint AND a surprise burst of your favorite soft cheese like feta or goat. I've tried both and it's hard for me to pick a favorite so I decided to let you decide in the recipe.
It's really just a handful of ingredients for a summer salad that is very memorable.
This Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe is easy enough for a side dish for a weekday dinner OR a simple dish to take to a summer potluck. Can you just imagine this at a 4th of July party??? I think it would be perfection.
Either way, I promise it will be a hit.
What's in this Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe...
So what's in this simple recipe? I'm glad you asked!
- Feta or Goat Cheese
THAT'S IT! The hardest part about the entire dish is cutting the watermelon in half. And I wouldn't judge you if you pick up the one at the store already cut in half. I'm all about a kitchen shortcut... especially with two babies in my world.

What a lovely bright and vibrant summer salad, the addition of crumbly goats cheese is genius!
I love this version of watermelon salad. This is so light and refreshing. The cucumbers add a great crunch to the salad. I think the feta makes it.
