red onion, thinly sliced
fresh lime juice
seedless watermelon, cubed
feta cheese, cubed
( or crumbled)
black olives, pitted and halved
( or use sliced ripe olives)
extra virgin olive oil
balsamic vinegar, to taste
fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish
- In a small bowl, cover the onion slices with the lime juice. The acid in the lime juice will help to mellow the onion a bit.
- In a large salad bowl, combine the watermelon, feta, olives, and onions (without the lime juice, but save the juice for the vinegrette) Set aside.
- Wisk together the reserved lime juice, olive oil and as much balsamic vinegar to suit your taste and preferences. Keep in mind there is quite a bit of flavour in the salad from the feta and olives so just 1 or 2 tbsp usually does the trick.
- Pour vinegrette over melon mixture and toss. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
