Matthew Lewis, chef and owner of the Where Ya At Matt? food truck in Seattle, makes this side dish in the height of summer, when melons are at their best. The cool, sweet juice of the fruit really hits the spot on a hot day.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat until boiling. Add onion and cook, turning as needed, until it's pink and most of vinegar is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Spoon onion out of pan, let cool slightly, then roughly chop.

Step 2

Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add onion and toss just to combine.

i made this for a family picnic a few weeks ago and it was a great hit. I used cotijas cheese and was very happy with the results. I will make this again, most definitely!

Huge hit with the family. I didn't want to use my Israeli feta, so I switched out chevre instead and they loved it. I am using feta the next time I make it, which is for the 4th of July events. I think the saltiness in the feta will meld nicely with the other flavors and suits my personal taste better.
