I’ve shared a watermelon cucumber salad on the blog before, but I’m not done sharing more variations of how to eat watermelon this summer (I’m obsessed). Last summer, our friends Paul & Christine had friends over for lunch and served this as a side at their cookout. It was by far my favorite part of the meal, but honestly anything with basil and feta usually is. I hope this refreshing salad makes it into your summer recipe rotation. Despite the simplicity of the recipe, the richness of the ingredients make it taste more complex, it’s a real crowd pleaser!
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Stir in orzo and return to a boil; cook until done, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain orzo and rinse under cold water; allow to drain completely. Once orzo is cool, toss with remaining ingredients in a serving bowl. Enjoy!
