Watermelon Summer Salad

How's this for the unexpected?!  Yumm!!!

Source:  Clare F.,

3/4 c. halved, thinly sliced red onion
1 T. fresh lime juice
1 1/2 qts. seeded, cubed watermelon
3/4 c. crumbled feta cheese
1/2 c. pitted black olive halves
1 c. chopped fresh mint
2 T. olive oil

Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice.  The acid of the lime will mellow the flavor of the raw onion.  Let stand 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with lime juice, and mint.  Drizzle olive oil over it all, and toss to blend.

Optional:  Serve in hollowed out watermelon shell.
