We are so lucky! We got to spend the Fourth of July in Sundance Utah with our family.

We enjoyed relaxing at the cabin…
…playing with the grandkids…
…hiking in the mountains…
…and talking around the fire pit, enjoying the cool mountain air.
Part of our Fourth of July menu was this Strawberry and Watermelon Salad with Mint and Feta.
This fruit salad is so easy to assemble: just combine melon, berries, chopped mint, feta and pine nuts, sprinkle with sea salt and a little white balsamic and you have a gorgeous summer salad!
The Recipe: Strawberry and Watermelon Salad with Mint and Feta
Tips and what you will need: You will need a good quality white balsamic. Grocery stores usually carry white balsamic but if yours doesn’t you can order Prelibato or this brand delivered to your door! You can assemble the salad a few hours ahead, but don’t dress until right before serving.
A beautiful refreshing summer fruit salad.
- 3 cups cold watermelon cut into small cubes
- 2 cups strawberries halved
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta or more!
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves chopped (and more for garish)
- 1/4 cup roasted pine nuts
- 2 pinches sea salt
- 1-2 tablespoons white balsamic
Place watermelon, berries, cheese, mint, and pine nuts in a bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt and toss. Drizzle with desired amount of white balsamic, toss again and garnish with more mint. Serve.

This looks delicious. My strawberries produce another round in September just in time for the watermelon to ripen. Can’t wait to try.
What a gorgeous looking salad. I must try this ASAP
I’ve been hunting for white balsamic for a while, and have had no luck. Suggestions for a substitute, appreciated.
I recommend the one I link to in the post. It’s the best in all the land!
This looks divine! I have never had anything like it but it’s so beautiful I want to try it!
I love this salad– its beauty and the creativity of using white balsamic. I need to get some.
I used to live in UT but only made it to Sundance once. It’s a beautiful part of the state! And so is that salad – yum!
It’s so gorgeous and peaceful! And we escaped the heat of July in California!
Watermelon and feta cheese. 2 of my favorite things.
P.S. Your kids are so cute.
Thanks. I think so too. But they are my grandkids:)
This looks amazing!! And so light and fresh!! Perfect for summertime!!
I’m loving all your photos!
I love the combination of watermelon and feta. The salty taste of feta tossed with juicy sweet watermelon is always is a winner. Its my favorite salad.
Agreed! Love the sweet and salty!
Have never thought that tomatoes and strawberries should be in the same dish.
You’ve changed my mind! Perfect summertime salad… or something to sneak in once or twice in the winter if you can get the ingredients. Chase the winter blahs away with this salad!
Rhuannon there are no tomatoes in this dish:) Just watermelon and strawberries…but it’s something to think about lol.
Looks like you had a great 4th! The salad looks delicious.
Sundance in Utah sounds amazing. Beautiful pictures. That strawberry and watermelon salad looks delicious!
YUM! Watermelon and strawberry topped with mint and feta??! This sounds amazing!
Oh my gosh this looks so yummy, watermelon is my favourite summer time fruit. I will have to try this recipe out.
Wow, I really love all your photos! Looks like everyone had fun, especially your very cute grandchildren! Also that salad is perfect idea for a day like that in a cabin!
What a fantastic 4th of July salad. Heck’ any time of salad. I love this combo and as many times as I have eaten it I actually have never made it myself. Glad to have a recipe so that I can try it. I pinned it for later.
beautiful salad and so refreshing too. Every time you share pictures of Utah I’m in awe of the beauty!
It truly is a beautiful state!
That salad looks amazing, and also I want to go stay there! It looks amazing too!
It’s so gorgeous! You live close by. Take a day hike up to Stewart Falls!
I’ve heard of these salads before, but I’ve actually never had a salad with watermelon, mint and feta. It sounds amazing! xx Adaleta Avdic
My mouth is watering! This looks amazing!
This salad looks absolutely phenomenal–so perfect for a summer get-together or a Sunday brunch bite! Love it!
We make something similar to this…it’s AMAZINGLY delicious! And that cabin! OH.MY.STARS!!! What an awesome vacation spot!
Wow I love all of these foods and combining them into a salad is such a great idea. I might make this and throw some extra spinach or arugula in there!
So making this beautiful salad for my nephew who is marine??and is home for only 10 days. Thank you!
You are so welcome! I hope he enjoys it!
Such a wonderful recipe, simple and delicious. Thanks
Thanks! I am glad you liked it!
I thought this was just ok. I would have used equal amounts of watermelon and strawberries, and DO NOT use extra feta. Like I said, the salad was ok. Good at first bite, but I tired of it quickly. Be sure to store it in a container with a colander bottom so it doesn’t get soggy.
