The sharpness of pickled onions offers a pleasing contrast to crisp, juicy watermelon and salty, creamy feta cheese.
1 cup vertically sliced red onion
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 small cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl, and let stand for 30 minutes. Drain.
Combine balsamic vinegar, oil, and pepper in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add onion mixture, watermelon, and cucumber; toss gently to coat. Arrange watermelon mixture on a platter. Top with cheese, mint, and basil.
