Eat your water during your period

If you’re anything like me, when it’s hot outside the last thing I want to do is eat a big, hot meal. Also, I’m horrible at remembering to drink enough water, so by the end of the day I am parched. Watermelon to the rescue!! 

Did anyone else grow up in a house where it was normal to put salt on your watermelon? I have always loved that combo, but also enjoy watermelon as-is. Because of my love for salty watermelon, the combo of watermelon and feta in the salad is key. And, if you are not team salted watermelon- I encourage you to give this salad a try anyway, because it is literally summer in a bowl. 

I have made a few variations of this salad, so feel free to add other fruits (berries or other melon) or fresh herbs as your heart desires. I like to add cilantro or mint sometimes. 

Watermelon, cucumber, red onion, apple cider vinegar, feta cheese, lemon, and olive oil on placed on top of a cutting board.


  • Watermelon- in chunks, or if you want to be fancy; melon balls
  • Cucumber- quartered and sliced. I prefer English
  • Red onion- sliced very thin
  • Feta cheese

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 ½ Tbsp Orange Juice
  • ½ - 1 tsp Sugar 


Mix dressing in a jar or shaker and adjust to taste. This amount of dressing will work for a small batch of the salad, (1 cucumber and ½ a small watermelon) so if you are making a large batch, double the recipe.

Completed watermelon salad in a white bowl, placed on top of a placement and next to a glass of orange juice.

Pairs well with:

  • Zoom Happy Hours
  • White Wine
  • Eating a giant bowl of this salad on your couch with no bra because it’s too hot
