My friend, Amber, who reps the Dirty South in the ATL just sent me this Oprah recipe, so we're totally ripping it off and renaming it as AMBER'S!
AMBER'S WATERMELON, FETA, AND BLACK OLIVE SALAD
1 small red onion, halved and sliced into thin half-moons
Juice of 2 limes, plus more to taste
3 1/2 pounds sweet, ripe watermelon, cut from rind and seeded
9 ounces feta cheese
1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 small bunch fresh mint, chopped
3 to 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup pitted black olives (preferably Kalamata)
Freshly ground black pepper
Place onion in a small bowl. Add lime juice and allow to steep.
Cut watermelon into approximately 1 3/4 inch triangular pieces (1/4-inch thick). Cut feta into similarly sized pieces and place in a large, wide, shallow bowl with watermelon. Tear off parsley leaves and add to bowl along with chopped mint.
Add onion, along with juices, to salad bowl. Add oil and olives; then, using your hands, toss salad very gently so that feta and melon chunks don't lose their shape. Add a good grinding of black pepper, and add lime juice to taste.
