Watermelon Salad






I was away when the Mr. and the cherubs went to lunch.

My boy cherub called me afterwards, all excited about this salad he had eaten.

"Mom, it's so good!  You're going to have to make it!"

Mind you, he had a general idea of the ingredients.

By general, I mean what he could see!

No thought of the ingredients that might be in it, but unseen!

This week at the store, I bought the ingredients to make this salad he has raved about.

To be fair, I want you to know that I've doubted this as remotely being something I would want to eat.

It doesn't sound good.

But he and the girl cherub say it is!

I even splurged on real Greek Feta cheese.

The one in the brine.

Just like we had while in Greece.

It DOES make a difference!

I had no idea, but that's for another post!

I measured nothing, but went my sight and the cherub's taste.

I am delightfully surprised and I actually like it.

I will be making this again, that's for sure!

Watermelon Salad

1 small seedless watermelon, cubed
1/4 red onion, sliced thin and chopped (I had 1/2 moon pieces)
feta cheese, crumbled
Kalamata olives, chopped (I used about 6 of them)
olive oil, drizzled
dried oregano, just a sprinkle
fresh mint leaves, chopped (I used about 8 leaves)

Toss everything in a bowl and allow the flavors to meld together.

Serve cold.
