½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
¼ cup basil leaves, removed from stems, can be chopped if desired

3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper


  1. In a large bowl, place watermelon and cucumbers.
  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk the vinaigrette ingredients. Pour over the watermelon and cucumber mixture and toss gently.  
  3. Sprinkle salad with feta cheese and garnish with basil.
