Watermelon makes a great substitute for tomatoes in this watermelon guacamole recipe — plus the rind is too cute not to use as a serving bowl. The sweetness of the watermelon tastes great with the spicy jalapeño and creamy avocado. It’s something a little different for your summertime party spread.

Watermelon feta guacamole


  • 9 ripe avocados, pitted
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2-3 jalapeños, finely chopped (remove the seeds if you don’t like a lot of heat)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeeze lime juice
  • 2 cups diced watermelon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbles (the jalapeño variety if you can find it), divided
  • And don’t forget tortilla chips for serving!


  1. Scoop out flesh from avocados into a large bowl. Smash with a fork until just slightly chunky. Add lime juice and mix until combined.
  2. Add cilantro, onion, jalapeño, watermelon, and 3/4 cup of the feta. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined.
  3. Sprinkle extra feta on top for serving.
  4. Serve with chips.
  5. Store leftovers in your guacamole keeper and keep them green longer.

My leftovers packed away in my guac keeper. I’m usually a skeptic about this kind of thing, but it actually kept my guac green for a full 4 days!
