This is a salad of sunshine, full of refreshing flavours and tangy feta cheese. So simple to put together and perfect for outdoor eating, BBQ or a picnic.
Slice the red onion thinly, about 1 mm thickness and put in a cup or mug. Tip 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar on top and push them about a bit with a fork to make sure they all get a good coating.
Cut the melon into slim wedges and using a teaspoon scoop out the seeds. Remove the rind and cut into ¾ cm chunks and put directly into the serving dish. Cut the cucumber in half length ways and remove the seeds before cutting into chunks, about 1.5 cm and put those too in the serving bowl. Give them both a light mix together.
Roll all the mint leaves into a sausage and cut into strips. Put on top of the chunks in the bowl and then add the steeped onions. Mix 3 tbsp of olive oil and 3 tbsp of balsamic glaze together and pour over the melon. Turn over the whole lot in the dressing.
Finally crumble 200 grams of the feta on top. Keep the crumbles quite big. Give it all a good grind of black pepper.

Change the dressing to suit your tastes. I sometimes simply use lime juice and a little sugar.
