Moroccan Watermelon Salad with Cucumber, pistachios, parsley, mint, onion and optional crumbled feta…refreshing, simple and delicious!


4–5 cups watermelon cut into ¾–1 inch cubes
4 Turkish cucumbers (or one English) cut into ¾ inch cubes
¼ Cup thinly sliced red onion
½ Cup chopped mint
½ cup chopped Italian parsley
¼–½ cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
¼ cup toasted pistachios
¼ Cup olive oil
⅛ Cup red wine or white balsamic vinegar
½ tsp salt, more to taste
cracked pepper
a pinch ground clove (or allspice, both optional)


Place watermelon, cucumber and onion in a large bowl. Add herbs, optional feta and pistachios.
Gently mix.
Add olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix to incorporate.
Taste and adjust salt… you made need more if not adding feta.


If making ahead, save the pistachios and some of the fresh herbs to add right before serving.
