Melon Mosaic Salad with Hot Honey Vinaigrette

Melon Mosaic Salad with Hot Honey Vinaigrette is a light and refreshing treat on a super-hot day, and it’s easy to serve to friends and family. This recipe is a combination of melon and cheese – it tastes wonderful and is a great starter “salad” for a heartier dish. It can also be a delicious lunch if you aren’t in the mood for something more filling.


Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes



  • 2 cups watermelon cubes
  • 2 cups cantaloupe cubes
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 to 2 seedless cucumbers, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 to 2 avocados, chopped
  • 1 8 ounce block feta, cut into cubes
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herbs, like mint, basil, and chives


Ingredients – Hot Honey Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons hot honey
  • 1 garlic clove, freshly grated
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup olive oil



  1. If you’re chopping everything yourself, be sure to chop the cubes roughly the same size. If you’re buying something pre-chopped, use that as the guide to size and chop everything else to size. Use the most of what you love! For instance, I like to use watermelon and cantaloupe the most, then cucumber, then fill in with avocado and tomato.
  2. As a note, you can also crumble the feta or do smaller cubes. You can also leave the cherry tomatoes whole and not slice them.
  3. Assemble the cantaloupe, watermelon, cucumber and feta cubes on a dish. Make the dressing as directed. Chop the tomatoes and the avocado, stick them in between a few of the cubes. There is no right way to do this! You can throw everything in a bowl, spread it out on a plate or layer it. Whatever you’d like.
  4. Sprinkle everything with salt and pepper. Drizzle with the dressing and cover with the fresh herbs. Serve!
  5. Leftovers of this are delicious.
