- 4 cups cubed watermelon
- 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 cup fresh mint, chiffonade
- kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
- 1 ts sugar
- Cotija or feta cheese
- extra virgin olive oil
- spiced candied kumquats (optional–we love this stuff and still had some left)
First pickle the onions in the lime juice with sugar and pinch of salt for about 10-15 min. In mixing bowl, combine watermelons, onions with lime juice, and mint. Mix gently, so as not to break the watermelon cubes. Drizzle with bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately topped with cotija or feta cheese. Of course, we added the candied kumquats which goes well with almost everything!
The epitome of light and refreshing!!
