Sweet, refreshing watermelon feta salad with a bit of a tang from the pickled daikon radishes and ends off with a salty note from the feta cheese.



  • 1/2 small watermelon (cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes) – approximately 3 cups
  • 1 stalk green onion (finely chopped, both the greens and whites but discard the very end with the roots)
  • 1 lime (juiced) – approximately 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup pickled daikon radish
  • 1/4 cup feta (crumbled)
  • 3 tablespoon sweet Vidalia onion or red onion (finely chopped)
  • black sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Cut the watermelon into 1 1/2 inch cubes (using a melon baller is a fun way to shape these as well) and set it in a bowl
  2. Cut the pickled daikons into 1/2 inch cubes and add it to the bowl
  3. Dice the sweet Vidalia onion and green onion finely and add it to the bowl
  4. Crumble the feta cheese over everything in the bowl
  5. Cut the lime in half and squeeze out the juice and put it into the bowl
  6. Gently mix everything in the bowl together
  7. Top with black sesame seeds (optional)
  8. Enjoy as a salad, appetizer, side dish or snack!
