Easy Watermelon Salad with Pepper Jelly Dressing

This Feta and Watermelon Salad recipe is from my friend, Becky. She made when we ate at her parent’s house for the 4th of July last year. We aren’t watermelon fans, but we both devoured this salad. Becky used goat cheese in her salad. Goat cheese is probably the one cheese that I don’t like, so I used feta. As we say in our house – “everything is betta with feta”.

How to Make Salad with Homemade Dressing

This Watermelon and Feta Salad is very easy to make. Chop the romaine and watermelon and then toss it in a simple dressing made from pepper jelly, cider vinegar, sugar, lime, onion, salt, pepper, and olive oil. You can make the dressing ahead of time and assemble the salad right before serving. If you are doing that, I suggest putting the dressing in a mason jar so you can shake it up really good before serving. You want to make sure that the oil is mixed into the rest of the ingredients.

  1. Hi, Steph. Your salad looked amazing, decided to try it, unfortunately didn't have all the ingredients called for in the dressing, so I just used Balsamic Vinaigrette. It was Delish!!!

  2. Hi, Steph. Your salad looked really good. I didn't have some of the ingredients for the dressing,

  3. Hi Steph! My daughter and I are both allergic to watermelon (and kiwi), but we love fruity salads like this! Is there another fruit you recommend to pair with the feta and dressing? Thank you!
