Perfect Summer Salad

Here's a quickie update since I haven't been around lately. Family is gone, I am back in business!

This watermelon salad sounds a little strange, but take my word for good. Really refreshing and savory at the same time. Perfect for summer cook-outs.


  • 3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 quarts seeded, cubed watermelon
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pitted black olive halves
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice. The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with the lime juice, and mint. Drizzle olive oil over it all, and toss to blend

Oh, YUM! I've always wanted to try watermelon with other savory ingredients!
