A chef friend tells me he thought this up, and wouldn't give me the recipe...but I found it on www.foodnetwork.com (Paula Deen). The only thing different (that I can tell) is that he used balsamic vinegar. Sounds strange, but it is a delightful combination of flavors.

Directions

  1. Cut the flesh from the melon and cut into bite size pieces, removing and discarding any seeds, and set aside. Peel and slice the onion into rings.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, salt, pepper, and whisk until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a few drops at a time. Add in the chopped mint, taste, and adjust seasonings.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the melon, onion, and feta. Pour the dressing over the melon mixture and toss gently until everything is coated and evenly mixed. Garnish with mint sprigs.
  4. To serve, divide salad among individual plates and garnish with mint leaves.
