  • Author: Recipe by Barbara Kobsar


This refreshing salad features some of summer’s best offerings: melons, peaches, and cucumbers. Good melon choices include watermelon, muskmelon, cantaloupe, and Persian melon.


Units Scale
  • 3 cups 1-inch melon cubes
  • 2 large peaches, skin removed, sliced into wedges
  • 2 Persian cucumbers, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 8 ounces crumbled feta or goat cheese or small-cubed gorgonzola
  • 2 tablespoons shredded fresh mint (plus extra whole leaves for garnish)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and fresh-cracked black pepper to taste


Arrange melon, peaches, cucumbers, and cheese down the middle of a long platter or board. Whisk together mint, oil, and vinegar or lemon juice and drizzle this vinaigrette over the assembled salad. Sprinkle with salt (to taste) and fresh-cracked pepper, garnish with mint leaves, and serve.
