Watermelon, Feta cheese and Olive Salad

A refreshing summer salad ! I saw this recipe few years ago in Nigella's show. Since then I have become fan of Nigella's . This recipe has some odd ingredients to go together,like onion and watermelon. I cannot think of these two ingredients to be together, but once you mix them  you will get all your taste buds tantalized. I was little skeptical about trying this recipe, but after making it, this is a regular feature of my potluck, dinners and parties. This salad is fabulous to look and tasty to eat.

Serves 6-8

  • 1 Small red onion
  • 3 Lime juice 
  • 4 Cups Watermelon Chunks
  • 1 Small Bunch Flat Leaf Parsley ( Coriander )
  • 1 Small Bunch Mint Chopped
  • 3 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Black Olives pitted
  • 200 Grams Feta Cheese cut into Cubes
  •  Fresh Ground Black Pepper

  1. Peel and halve the red onion and cut into very fine half moons and put in a small bowl to steep.
  2. Tear of sprigs of parsley so that it is used like a salad leaf.
  3. In a wide shallow bowl combine, water melon chunks, feta cheese cubes, black olives. mint, parsley and tip the now glowingly puce onion, along with their pink juices over the salad in the bowl, add the oil, then using your hands toss the salad very gently so that feta and melon won't lose their shape.
  4. Add good grinding of black pepper and taste to see whether the dressing needs more lime.
  5. ENJOY !
