When I think of summer I immediately think watermelon. It was basically a summer-time staple of mine when I was a kid. If there was watermelon at a cookout I was there! Although I do still enjoy slurping a nice cold watermelon triangle, I’m at the age now where I prefer my watermelon in a more sophisticated fashion - among other sophisticated ingredients.

I’ll go ahead and admit I’m a little biased towards red onion (I put it on everything 🤷‍♀️), but it adds a little extra crunchy something to the mix. It’s the perfect pairing to some juicy watermelon and creamy avocado chunks. Then you go and sprinkle some feta cheese crumbles (optional) and fresh mint and you have yourself one sophisticated watermelon salad everyone at the cookout will enjoy!

By the way, if you’re not a fan of dairy, I highly suggest swapping out the feta cheese for some plant-based cheese like this Miyoko’s Cheese. It’s mind blowing!
