Juicy, sweet watermelon adds a burst of colour and freshness to this simple cucumber and Gorgonzola salad. Enjoy it as an appetizer or pair it along with some burger patties or grilled chicken for a healthy summer feast. Use rich and tangy Feta or milder goat cheese instead if you ain't fance for sharper blue cheese.

Mint Yoghurt DressingMango Chilli Dressing
  • 1 Organic cucumber
  • 700 g Seedless watermelon, peeled and cut into triangles
  • 80 g Gorgonzola, crumbled
  • Fresh mint and basil leaves
  • 125 g Plain Greek yoghurt, full fat
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 tsp Freshly grated ginger
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Sweet ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 2 Peperoncini / hot chilli peppers
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Garlic infused honey or pure honey
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  1. To make mint yoghurt dressing. Blend yoghurt, mint leaves, garlic and ginger in a blender until well combined. Transfer to a bowl and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover with plastic wrap. Store in the fridge until ready for use.
  2. To make spicy mango dressing. Blend together the mango, chilli peppers, lime juice, ACV, honey and basil leaves until smooth and combined. Season with salt and pepper. Store in the fridge until ready for use.
  3. Use a vegetable spiraliser to cut cucumber into noodle-like strands. Place a small bowl of either dressing in the centre of a large round serving platter. Place watermelon and cucumber noodles around dressing on the platter. Sprinkle with blue cheese and some fresh mint or basil leaves. Serve immediately.

Cucumbers and watermelons are a great combo but I would not have thought to pair them with Gorgonzola. I am loving those two dips/dressings!

Kitchen Riffs 21/6/20 17:09

We have one of those small seedless watermelons just begging us to cut up. I know what I'm using part of it for! Great salad -- thanks.

Eva Taylor 21/6/20 19:09

This looks so fresh and colourful, a perfect summer salad! And I like the sound of that mango dressing.

What a colorful and tasty looking plate of yum. I've eaten my share of watermelon, but never with these types of dressing. Oh and yes, I'll have a nice piece of grilled chicken and a glass of dry Riesling with mine and I'll be a happy camper...

Tried watermelon with feta before and like the balance of sweet and salty. Lovely dressings for the watermelon cucumber salad! It's gonna be so hot over here this week - how nice to have watermelon and cucumber to cool it down ;p

Raymund 23/6/20 22:13

Watermelon and cheese is such a great combo, tried this as well with prosciutto and it was also good. The saltiness and sweetness combo gives it an edge

judee 24/6/20 02:47

The presentation of that beautiful watermelon salad is spectacular! It sounds really good too with the blue cheese. Love it..

Angie this looks beautiful!!

Katerina Delidimou 2/7/20 14:04

Gorgonzola has a milder flavor compared to other blue cheeses. That would be a hit in my family!

mjskit 4/7/20 00:34

Unbelievable, I have ALL of these ingredients and a very BIG watermelon. This will be perfect for Sunday night after a larger 4th of July meal. Thanks for this recipe! It's gorgeous and looks SO GOOD!

Catherine 7/7/20 19:27

Another beautiful salad to enjoy. I love Gorgonzola cheese too. Perfect for the hot summer. xoxo Catherine

Well you may not have come across blackcurrants, but just look at that gorgeous watermelon. I adore watermelon, but never seem to find any good ones. Those dressings both sound good too, particularly the mint one. I'm really into mint at the moment, it must be summer!
