Mum's Onion and Watermelon Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is a recipe my mum used to make in summer. Very refreshing and nice. It would probably work with a balsamic vinaigrette.


  1. Scoop out a whole watermelon using a small curler (so that the flesh is in balls).
  2. Dice two or three white onions and fresh mint- to taste (or parsley in a pinch).
  3. Mix through and enjoy.

What a great salad and so refreshing. Measurement-wise, I used 900 grams of watermelon cubes, 1/4 of a small white onion and 1/4 teaspoon of dried mint -- no fresh on hand. I may sprinkle over a couple of teaspoons of balsamic vinegar before it goes to the dinner table. Made and reviewed for Pick a Chef in April 2007.
