Are you one that themes out your 4th of July party? Red, white and blue all the things so it’s festively America? If so, you’re awesome and in luck! This watermelon blueberry feta salad is deliciously festive and will not doubt look beautiful on your table.

Late last summer I shared this watermelon salad recipe and was inspired to do this red, white and blue version. So I jotted the recipe down in my trusty college rule notebook and slapped a sticky note at the top and wrote Summer 2018 on the top. And look, here we are!

This watermelon blueberry feta salad covers all of my favorite flavor profiles: sweet and salty. The pistachios add crunch and the mint adds a fresh flavor.

First gather your ingredients. To make this pretty salad, you will need: 1/2 a large seedless watermelon (sliced), blueberries, champagne vinaigrette, fresh crumbled feta cheese, pistachios, mint and freshly ground black pepper.

Start by making the champagne vinaigrette by adding 1 tablespoon of champagne vinegar and then a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper into a small jar. Whisk while pouring in 1 tablespoon light olive oil until combined. That’s it!

Next, in a large bowl, add roughly 6 cups diced watermelon and 1 pint rinsed fresh blueberries.

Then drizzle in all of the champagne vinaigrette and add in the thinly sliced fresh mint. Use a rubber spatula to gently combine.

FYI: to chiffonade, stack the mint leaves and then roll into a cigar shape. Use a sharp knife and slice thin.

Lastly, dish the salad onto a serving plate or serving bowl. Then top with about 3 ounces freshly crumbled feta cheese, 2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios, extra black pepper and more sliced mint.

I like to use fresh feta as opposed to pre-crumbled because I like the texture a lot better. If you read the ingredient list of pre-crumbled cheese you’ll see that they  are typically coated in a non-caking ingredient. I try to avoid it.

The salty feta works well with the sweet watermelon and blueberries is out of this world. The pistachio give this salad the textural crunch and but most importantly, the fresh mint brightens the whole thing up a notch.

This watermelon salad is refreshing and perfect for feeding a crowd! You certainly may cut this recipe in half for serving a smaller family or gathering.

    You are so clever. What a fun patriotic salad and I love how you displayed it both ways..the watermelon bowl is gorgeous and amazing!! Wishing you a safe and happy 10 of July!!Really good, got lots of compliments at a barbecue. I used queso fresca instead of feta (my husband doesn’t like sheep cheese) but may not do it again since it turns into something like curdled cottage cheese. Will try again without the cheese, or maybe ricotta salata?
