I was a bit worried about this as most of the recipes I have seen online have not looked dressed/juice/tasty but then a friend told me he buys marinated feta for this & just adds lemon to the oily marinade.
200gm danish feta
handful fresh mint
1/4 cup virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tsp herbs
First you need to build your marinade by finely chopping garlic, adding dried oregano or fresh thyme (preference) adding olive oil, salt & a good grind of pepper.
Add chunks of feta to this & toss gently.
Refridgerate until needed.
Toast the walnuts
Finely slice the onion & blanch in boiled water from the kettle,stir, immediately refresh with cold water & drain. Alternatively use the milder red onion.
Slice watermelon into bite sized peices & lay on a platter.
Scatter over the onion, then the oily feta, the walnuts, the juice of the lemon & finally the mint leaves.
Will sit happily for a short while, and the leftovers were ok the next day having been refridgerated in a covered container but I would not make ahead as a general rule.
