We enjoyed this, but I think we would've liked it even more if it had been chilled for awhile to give the mint time to blend with everything else. I would make it again because it's a great healthy side salad.

Did not like this at all. Not enough cucumber and too much watermelon

After tasting this salad, I was immediately taken back to a wonderful little restaurant in Athens Greece! I am thrilled to know that this recipe is here for us to enjoy any time we want to!!!! With the summer upon us right now, I can see myself making this as a side with all kinds of dishes! Thanks for the albeit, in my mind, vacation back to Greece!

I thought this an excellent side dish. It was refreshing, tasty, and healthy with simple ingredients. This one is a keeper!

I gave this a four star because I did not care for it, but my guests really enjoyed it and happily took the leftovers home. The only change I made was to skip the oil. I am sorry, but I could not put oil on watermelon ;-). I am not sure why I didn't like this as I do like all the ingredients in it. My guests found it very refreshing, but for me there was something missing. I don't think I will try this again.

I really enjoyed this salad after chilling for a short time. Raw onion upsets my stomach but I decided to go for it anyway to see how it tasted, as is. I used regular onion as I didn't have red, and sliced it thick so I can pull it out of my serving easily. That said, the next day, the onion taste was too strong for me- I liked it better after tasting it slightly chilled the night before. I will definitely make again and skip the onion. May add cilantro to add to the flavor. My son really enjoyed it.

Good. Make sure you cut the watermelon same size as the cucumber or the cucumber will fall to the bottom and larger chunks of watermelon will sit on top. The flavors won't blend together.

This is one of those salads that you can make your own by modifying it to suit your taste. I used crumbled goat cheese and a drizzle of a champagne vinaigrette. The mix of watermelon and tangy cheese was out of the box and out of this world.
