I have been a fan of Chef Nigella Lawson for years and have all of her cookbooks. This watermelon salad recipe has been a favorite of our family for many summer holidays over the years. Combining onions with watermelon, feta, and olives may sound like quite the odd combination but I think you will be pleasantly surprised. It is both sweet and a savory and is an exciting treat for the taste buds!

Use organic ingredients whenever possible.

Mediterranean Watermelon Salad

adapted from Nigella Lawson’s recipe in “Forever Summer”

1 watermelon cut into somewhat bite-sized triangles

1 can or jar pitted black olives

1 small red onion sliced very thin

juice of 3-4 limes

2-3 TBS extra virgin olive oil

a hunk of feta cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces

fresh mint, chopped

dried mint-optional

fresh flat-leaf parsley

freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Place lime juice and sliced onions in a small bowl to macerate and set aside.

Place watermelon, olive oil, olives, feta, mint and parsley in a large bowl and toss very gently. Add onions with the lime juice they are sitting in.

Sprinkle with a little black pepper and some dried mint if desired and serve.

Your mouth will thank you! Trust me!

Enjoy!
