12 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup salad and about 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese)

Instead of offering watermelon wedges at your next cookout, branch out with this sweet and savory watermelon salad featuring cubed watermelon, red onion, kalamata olives, mint, and feta cheese. Even with all the added flavorful ingredients, it still weighs in at only 46 calories per 1/2-cup serving.

How to Make It

Combine onion and juice in a medium bowl; let stand 10 minutes. Add watermelon, olives, parsley, and mint. Cover and chill 1 hour. Sprinkle with cheese.

Made this for friends while on. Long weekend and they loved even though I forgot to bring the olives and the parsley.

Ridiculously good and versatile if you don't have all the ingredients on hand.

I made this for my daughter's Bridal Shower and have had to give this recipe out to half the people that attended. My daughter is allergic to mint so I sustituted basil and it was wonderful. Easy to make, surprising flavor and can be made ahead of time.
