We love travelling in the tropics! Yes it may be hot and humid however the blue sky days are picture perfect, the palm trees sway gently in the breeze, and the abundance of tropical fruit on offer is one of our favourite things!

On our recent travels between Cairns and Ingham in Tropical North Queensland we pulled over at a roadside fruit stall and grabbed ourselves a huge watermelon, picked fresh off the farm next door. 

The perfect complement to a hot summer’s day is a deliciously cooling and moreish salad, and this watermelon, feta and mint combo will have the entire family Feeling Good! And with only 5 ingredients, it doesn’t get any easier than this! 


700g watermelon

1 small red onion

180g feta cheese

1 small bunch fresh mint

Extra virgin olive oil


Cut the watermelon into bite sized chunks and add to a serving bowl.

Finely slice the red onion before adding it to the watermelon. Then crumble over the feta cheese. Tear the mint leaves into small pieces and add to mix. 

Gently combine all ingredients. Drizzle over a little olive oil and season with cracked black pepper. 

Serve immediately and enjoy this deliciously fresh salad!

Tip – refrigerate the watermelon before making.
