  1. Mix the vinegar and Dijon mustard in a bowl. Stir the garlic, salt, and pepper into the mixture. Slowly stream the olive oil into the dressing while whisking vigorously. Place the dressing in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Combine the watermelon, feta cheese, and red onion in a large bowl; toss lightly to mix. Season with the coarsely ground black pepper. Pour about half the dressing over the salad; gently toss to coat. Refrigerate the salad at least 30 minutes. Drizzle the remaining dressing over the salad just before serving.

Such a tasty salad, I love this one! I halved this recipe because I was the only one eating it and I truly wish I didn't. That's ok, I have more ingredients to make more. I followed this as written and it is so very different, I never had a salad similar to this, even though I love feta. Letting this sit for 30 mins does wonders, the flavors blend beautifully. I can't wait to make this throughout the summer with fresh locally grown melons. It's perfect to me as written, and this would compliment so many grilled summer foods. I made sure I had watermelon, feta, and onion in every bite, this is great. The mustard also adds a wonderful touch to the dressing. I will make this salad often and can't wait to try it out on others! Thanks Evin for sharing this one, this is a keeper for sure :)


Used half the dressing and half the feta. I thought it was great! I used a very sweet watermelon, and I think this would work better with a less sweet one, so I'll save this to use again when I have a mediocre watermelon. Great combination of salty and sweet. I don't think this one would work for everybody, but it definitely works for me.


A very easy and refreshing salad! I have never tried a combo like this before but love all the ingredients in this recipe, so I thought why not? I followed the directions to a T. I only used about half of the dressing total. I loved the salad and so did my 8 yo son. I loved the fact that it did not make a huge amount. Leftovers probably would not keep well. The jury is still out with my hubby but he ate a nice size portion, so I think that is a good sign. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
