Ring in June with this wonderfully simple recipe for Watermelon Salad. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the flavor of the early watermelons.
½ medium red onion or a few shallots
½ - ⅓ cup fresh lime juice
3 lbs of seedless watermelon
8 oz feta cheese
½ cup fresh mint, chopped
¼ cup olive oil
⅔ cup Kalamata olives, pitted & chopped
- Slice the red onion into thin half moons. Place in a small bowl and cover with the lime juice to marinate.
- Chop the watermelon into bite sized chunks and place in a large serving dish.
- Crumble or slice the feta into ½ inch pieces, and sprinkle over the watermelon.
- Add the lime juice, marinated onion, olives and olive oil to the watermelon dish. Toss gently with your hands. Taste for acidity and add more lime juice if desired. Serve immediately.
