Watermelon Salad with Mint Leaves

Ingredients:
1 (5-pound) watermelon
1 sweet onion
1/4 c. Traditional Balsamic
Salt and pepper
1/2 c. Mild Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
6 whole mint sprigs

Instructions:

Cut the flesh from the melon and cut into bite size pieces, removing and discarding the seeds, and set aside. Peel and slice the onion into rings. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, salt, pepper, and whisk until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a few drops at a time. Add in the chopped mint, taste, and adjust seasonings.

In a large bowl, combine the melon, onion, and feta. Pour the dressing over the melon mixture and toss gently until everything is coated and evenly mixed. Garnish with mint sprigs.

Note: Can use fruit flavoured balsamics like Pink Grapefruit (this staff member's favourite in this salad!), or Blueberry, Strawberry, Cherry, Peach, or Cranberry Pear.
