Watermelon, Mint and Feta Salad

I had this salad in mind for a long time. This weekend we got very fragrant and pungent mint from my father-in-laws farm and I had to make this. The cool watermelon, the pungent mint and the salty feta make it a combo to savor. You can also try variations by adding some balsamic vinegar and maybe some finely diced red onion. It tastes best when cold, so make sure the watermelon is chilled. 

Ingredients:

3 cups cubed and deseeded watermelon
2 tablespoons crumbled feta
2 tablespoons chopped mint

For the dressing

Juice of 2 lemons
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt 
Fresh ground black pepper

Mix the ingredients for the dressing and add half the feta and all the mint in it. Whisk well. Add this to the watermelon and toss well so all the watermelon is covered with the dressing. 
Remove on to a serving plate and spread the remaining feta on top. Enjoy!
