Watermelon with Mint, Lime and Feta

Yesterday I noticed Mums smugly sitting outside the door of Stop and Shop.   I refused to even glance their way. How dare they remind me that Fall is on its way? Completely ignoring them, I strode in and bought the ingredients for a sweet, cool watermelon salad that, once assembled, pretty much screamed “It’s still summer!” at the mums down the street.

That’ll show them, as my dad used to say.

Watermelon with Mint, Lime and Feta

Grocery list: (ignore the mums if you see them)

Cubes of Watermelon
Feta Cheese
Kalamata olives (I prefer Sclafani brand)
Red onion, thinly sliced

Chopped fresh mint

Place the first four ingredients into a salad bowl.  Drizzle with EVOO.  Add chopped mint, then squeeze lime over all.  Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for a few minutes to blend flavors.  Savor with the knowledge that living well is truly the best revenge.

  1. I agree with Elaine on both counts. Never thought of pairing watermelon with red onions, mint, and feta. Sounds positively delicious. Thanks for sharing!
