Serves: 4Prep: 15 minutesTotal: 15 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 4 cups cubed watermelon
  • 2 Private Selection™ Mini Seedless Cucumbers, thinly sliced into ribbons
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper, for seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons Private Selection™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Private Selection™ Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling
  • 4 ounces Private Selection™ Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Private Selection™ Shelled Pistachios, roughly chopped
  • Fresh basil, thinly sliced, for serving


  • Tip: To tame the onion’s strong flavor, soak slices in cold water for 15 minutes; drain and pat dry.
  • In a bowl, toss the watermelon, cucumbers and red onion with a pinch of salt and pepper; add olive oil and toss gently to coat.
  • Arrange on a large serving platter, drizzle balsamic glaze overtop, to taste. Scatter feta cheese over the salad, then the pistachios, followed by the basil.
  • Season with a generous grind of pepper.
  • Serve immediately, refrigerating any leftovers.
