    Serves: 6 

    • 3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced red onion
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • about 2 litres (8 cups) 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

    Preparation:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    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. Dig in and be prepared for a pleasant surprise!

    I have made this in the past for a party and it was the first salad gone. Huge hit, looks colourful and tastes fantastic and everyone wanted the recipe. Is very summery and perfect for a barbeque  -  07 Dec 2008


    This is absolutely delicious! I used kalamata olives, which were great. I also soaked the onions for about 30 minutes--I don't normally like raw onions but they were great. And the mint is critical--I considered leaving it out, but ended up making a special trip to the store to get it, and I'm glad I did because it made all the difference. Try this!!  -  05 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
