Spiced with Harissa, serrano chilies,black olives and cumin topped with feta cheese and almonds. A delightful warm weather salad. This is a recipe I put together for ZWT-7, Africa.

Very interesting and tasty salad! I made as directed but left the onions off my serving (don't care for them); next time I think I'll leave the olives off too as I thought the salad was better without them. The mint was a nice complement to the spicy dressing and sweet melon. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
