Watermelon Salad with Mint
This is a delicious salad I got from an Australian friend. We prepared this together following the recipe: http://cheese.food.com/recipe/watermelon-feta-and-black-olive-salad-62318.
The taste of this salad is so amazing that I had to prepare this for my family as well.
I believe that the crucial point is the combination of watermelon, mint and lime juice. Feta cheese and olives give to the salad the salted touch necessary to be a “salad” and enhance the flavors.
Please, don’t add salt as this would soak the watermelon juice!
