WATERMELON SALAD WITH FETA AND MINT

Every summer, I love ordering a watermelon salad when I am out at a restaurant. It is so delicious and refreshing, that I thought that I should try a recipe at home. This one is a hit! I love the combo of the olives and feta with the watermelon. I soaked the onion in ice water for 10 minutes to take out the bite. Just perfect!

1 small sweet onion, cut into ½-inch dice

In a large bowl, whisk the oil, lemon juice, salt, Tabasco and pepper. Add the watermelon, feta, olives and onion and toss gently. Garnish with the mint and serve.
