This takes mere minutes to make, and yet it manages to look painterly on a plate! The white, salty cheese against the sweet, red flesh –  dual contrast of taste and color, and strewn with mint…… I tried it and loved this summer salad!  Don’t worry about the onion, being soused in lime juice its acrid burn will elude you. It is fresh, fast and fantastic!

Half a medium sized watermelon

200 gms feta cheese

1 large onion

some mint leaves

juice of one lime

1. Cut the watermelon in triangular pieces. Chop the feta cheese into one inch cubes.

2. Slice the onions in rings or half moons and douse them in the juice of one lime for about 15 mins.

3. Arrange the salad on a plate. First the watermelon, then the cheese, and a final strewing of soused onions and mint leaves. It’s as simple as that.
