Watermelon, Feta and Black Olive Salad

FOUND IN: Salad on June 10, 2012

Refreshing! The perfect summertime salad.

  • 1 small red onion
  • 2-4 limes, depending upon juiciness
  • 3-1/2 lbs sweet, ripe watermelon
  • 9 oz feta cheese
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 bunch fresh mint, chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 oz (1/2 cup) of pitted black olives
    black pepper
  1. Peel and halve the red onion, cutting into very fine half-moons. 
  2. Put into a small bowl to steep with the lime juice. 
  3. Remove the rind and seeds from the watermelon and cut into triangular chunks (about 1-1/2" in size).  Cut the feta into similar sized pieces, and put them into a large, wide bowl. 
  4. Tear off parsley sprigs to use as a salad leaf, rather than as a garnish, and add to the bowl with the chopped mint.
  5. Add the onion and lime juice mixture over the salad, then add the olive oil and the olives
  6. Toss gently and add black pepper, to taste.  Enjoy!
