Freshing Watermelon Salad

It's almost the end of summer, but we can still enjoy some of the fresh summer fruits available for a little longer. I came across this recipe and it looked interesting. I have to admit that it seemed like an odd combination of ingredients, but it turned out to have an amazing flavor!

• small watermelon
• 1/2 medium-sized sweet onion
• 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
• salt & pepper
• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
• 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese

Cut the watermelon into bite size pieces.

Peel and dice half the onion into small pieces.

In a small bowl, mix the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Add the mint and mix well.

In a large serving bowl, add the watermelon, onion and feta cheese. Pour oil mixture over the fruit and mix gently.

Be sure to prepare right before serving as the watermelon will make the salad watery if it sits too long.

So yummy! And a great healthy snack!

  6. (Hopped here from 504 Main!) That picture looks mouthwatering! I don't have any watermelon (fresh tomatoes from the garden...but, I don't think it would be the same! :>), so can I come for dinner? :> Have a fantastic weekend! :>
