Mum's Onion and Watermelon Salad

Mum's Onion and Watermelon Salad created by Salsa Girl

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

    I was shown how to make this by an Italian neighbours grandma around about 1980, she used thinly sliced white onions and a really good splash of French dressing. Was even better the next day, slightly pickled. I’m salivating!

    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.
