  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 2 limes
  • 4 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup cubed feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves packed
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Ground black pepper to your taste


  • Peel and thinly slice the onion, place in a small bowl.
  • Juice the two limes and pour the juice over the sliced onions. Reserve.
  • Remove the rind and chop the watermelon into even sized cubes (bite size is good).
  • Chop the feta cheese (I like mine in small cubes).
  • Wash the mint and chop coarsely.
  • Assemble the salad by combining the watermelon, feta cheese, mint, olive oil and the lime juice with the onions.
  • Toss the ingredients gently to combine, add ground black pepper to your taste.
