Refreshing Watermelon Salad with Balsamic Reduction


This mouth-watering salad is an absolute crowd pleaser and is easy to bring to family gatherings or barbeques with friends, to add a light healthy side to meals or enjoyed alone! Super hydrating with fresh cucumber and watermelon with an added punch of flavour from the balsamic reduction, fresh mint and feta.


Serves – 5-6

Prep time –10 Minutes  Cook time – 15  minutes



6-7 cups seedless watermelon, cubed

2 Lebanese cucumbers, diced

½ cup feta, crumbed

2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped


For Balsamic Reduction

1 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons unrefined sweetener of choice (coconut sugar, maple syrup or honey)



First, to make the balsamic reduction in a medium saucepan (that is nonreactive), add the balsamic vinegar and sweetener. Bring to a simmer over a medium-high heat and then keep it at a low simmer. To thicken and reduce it will take around 10-15 minutes. *Make sure you are keeping an eye on it as you don’t want it to burn! Once it coats the back of a spoon it is thick enough, remove from the heat and leave to cool.

To make the salad cut the watermelon and cucumber into small, bite-sized cubes, chop the mint and mix together. Top with fresh crumbed feta and drizzle on your beautiful homemade balsamic reduction
