Pittman & Davis Watermelon Salad

Pittman & Davis

On hot, sultry summer days when everything seems too heavy, prepare this refreshing salad! It’s full of sweet and cool watermelon, cucumber and mint leaves, while the avocado and feta cheese add a savory touch. A lime-garlic vinaigrette dressing adds zing. For extra bite, toss in some sliced hot pepper!


For the salad:

5 c. Pittman & Davis Watermelon, cubed

1 c. English cucumber, diced

¼ c. red onions, thinly sliced

⅓ c. feta cheese, crumbled

1 avocado, cubed

⅓ c. mint leaves, torn

½ jalapeño or serrano pepper, thinly sliced, optional

Sea salt, to taste

For the dressing:

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

3 Tbsp. lime juice

½ garlic clove, minced

¼ tsp. sea salt


In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, garlic and ¼ teaspoon sea salt. Arrange watermelon, cucumber, and red onions on a large plate or platter. Drizzle with half the dressing. Top with feta, avocado, mint, and pepper (if using) and drizzle with remaining dressing. Season to taste and serve.
