Watermelon and Feta Salad

So I should be writing my dissertation, but here I am blogging instead.  It's writing, right??? 

A few days ago, I stumbled across a recipe for Watermelon and Feta salad.  I didn't really look at the recipe, and I have no idea where I saw it.  Magazine?  Internet?  Cookbook?  Last night I figured I'd experiment.  I googled Watermelon and Feta salad, I googled the ingredients, and in the end, I decided to just to play around with the flavors.  I was expecting something that was OK, but when your 9 year old son is yelling about how good it is and asking for more, I knew I had something to share!  It is sweet, salty, creamy and crunchy, with a little minty-ness going on.  YUM!

Watermelon and Feta Salad

2 cups chopped watermelon
1/3 c. diced feta cheese
2 T. diced red onion
1-1/2 T. dried mint (fresh mint would be fabulous in this dish...but all I had was dried.)
1-1/2 T. olive oil
1-1/2 T. lemon juice
1/2 t. honey
pinch of salt
1/8 t. pepper

In a bowl, mix the watermelon, feta, red onion and mint together.  In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and salt/pepper together.  Pour over the watermelon mixture and chill until ready to serve.  Enjoy~

I can't wait to make this again!  This is not my picture, but it looks like what I made!
