  • 500 g watermelon
  • ½ cup feta cheese* (~75g)
  • ½ cup arugula leaves
  • 6-7 sprigs of fresh mint
  • Black salt to taste


  • Cut watermelon into cubes and remove as many seeds as you can. Removing the seeds is, of course, optional, but it just makes it easier to enjoy the salad more.
  • Place arugula and mint leaves on a large bowl. Add watermelon cubes.
  • Sprinkle black salt on top and gently mix.
  • Keep the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 mins before serving so that the watermelon is nicely chilled.
  • Before serving, crumble feta on top.
  • Remove on serving plates and enjoy cold.


*For a vegan recipe, you can skip the feta and try the watermelon salad with arugula and walnuts recipe
It also makes a great salad to pack for tiffin.
