directions

  • Peel and halve the red onion and cut into very fine half-moons and put in a small bowl to steep with juice of two limes (more if they are dried up) to bring out the transparent pinkness in the onions and diminish their "onion-ness.".
  • Remove the rind and seeds (if necessary) from the watermelon, and cut into approximately 1 1/2 inch triangular chunks or use a melon baller. Cut the feta into similar sized pieces and put them both into a large, wide shallow bowl. Add chopped mint, along with sprigs of parsley if desired.
  • Pour onions, along with their juices, over the salad in a bowl, add olive oil and olives, then using your hands toss the salad gently so that the feta and melon don't lose their shape. Add a grinding of black pepper and taste to see whether the dressing needs more lime.

    *D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S* What a wonderful salad :) Great combination of ingredients. I used the juice of 2 limes and included the olive oil, olives and mint to the sliced onions and let marinate for a few hours. This is now in my salad rotation. Thanks for posting *Made for Spring 2010 PAC*
