Watermelon Basil Salad

This week, we just had to try on the latest trend taking over Instagram – the Watermelon Dress!

But what to do with that leftover watermelon? Give this refreshing Watermelon Basil Salad a try!

Serves: 8


  • ½ cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup red onion, sliced
  • 10 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1 English cucumber, cubed
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Pinch black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet and roast for 5-10 minutes, tossing the nuts occasionally to ensure they cook evenly.
  2. In a small bowl, pour lime juice over red onions. Place marinated onions to the side.
  3. Mix the watermelon, cucumber, basil, feta cheese and black pepper in a large bowl. Add marinated onions and toasted walnuts to salad and mix to combine.
