Watermelon, Cucumber & Mint Salad with Ironbark Honey Vinaigrette

Watermelon and cucumber absolutely sing together in this fresh and summery salad. No wonder they are so harmonious, as they are part of the same plant family, commonly referred to as the cucurbits. We’ve opted for our all time most popular Single Varietal honey, Bee Delicate Ironbark. It is quite a sweet honey, with buttery and creamy flavours - the ideal honey to balance out a zingy vinaigrette.



Prep time:15 minutes


Honey Vinaigrette
  • 2 tbsp Bee Delicate Ironbark Honey
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1-2 tbsp quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
Watermelon Salad
  • 1/2 watermelon (peeled and cut into cubes)
  • 1 cucumber (cubed)
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese (crumbled)


  • For the vinaigrette, simply add all the ingredients into an old (honey) jar and give it an almighty shake. This will emulsify the ingredients into a lovely vinaigrette. The added joy of making it in the jar is that you can also transport the dressing safely to your picnic, BBQ or party destination.
  • Peel and chop the watermelon into nice chunky cubes, and slice up the cucumber into similar sizes. You can leave the skin on. Pop into your serving dish.
  • Roughly chop the herbs, and crumble the feta - ready for assembly.
  • When you are ready, toss the dressing though the melon and cucumber and herbs, and finish by sprinkling the feta over the top. Enjoy!
