Ready in: 20minutes
4cups(20 oz) chilled seedless watermelon diced into small chunks
1/2english cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced
1/3cupquartered and thinly sliced red onion
1/2cupfresh mint leaves, chopped
4ozfeta cheese, crumbled
2/3cupchopped walnuts, toasted
3Tbspfresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the dressing:
In a jar combine olive oil, lemon juice, honey, mustard and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with lid and shake to combine. Chill until ready to use.
To assemble salad:
In a salad bowl layer together salad ingredients.* Shake dressing again then pour over top. Very gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
I actually like to set aside some of the feta and walnuts to sprinkle over the top, they tend to make their way to the bottom of the bowl somehow.
