Double-Melon Salad


Feta cheese on fruit? Try it. There’s something surprisingly delicious about the combination of salty cheese and sweet, juicy melon. Kids Advisory Board member Liana said the “feta cheese gave the fruit a super unique and flavorful taste, which I was surprised that I liked!”

kitchen gear

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife (adult needed)
  • Medium-sized bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons



  • 2 heaping cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup cubed or crumbed feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch kosher salt



  • Put all the ingredients in the bowl and toss gently.
  • Serve right away, or cover and refrigerate up to overnight (if you want to serve it later, keep the feta out and add it just before serving).


When you see the term “heaping” in a recipe, it refers to a measurement that’s more generous than exact. In this case, it’s enough melon cubes to extend up past the edge of the measuring cup.

What did the honeydew say to the cantaloupe? You’re one in a melon.
