Watermelon Summer Salad

watermelon-feta-saladYou cut the top off a watermelon, scoop out the melon and refill it with all the below ingredients.  The combination is a big surprise. If you want to be creative, you can cut the edge of your watermelon in a zigzag pattern.

¾ cup halved, thinly sliced red onion

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 ½ quarts seeded, cubed watermelon

¾ cup crumbled feta cheese

½ cup pitted black olive halves

1 cup chopped fresh mint

2 tablespoons olive oil

Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice. The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion. Let it stand for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with the lime juice and mint. Drizzle olive oil over mixture and toss.
