Canada Day Salad

We just tried this salad - and it's essentially red and white; so would have been good for Canada Day.

Watermelon Salad

1 (2 kg) seedless watermelon
1 thinly sliced red onion
½ cup crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
½ cup oil
2 TLB chopped fresh mint
6 whole mint sprigs

Peel and cut the flesh from the melon into bite-sized pieces.  Peel and slice the onion into rings. Combine the watermelon, onion and feta in a large bowl.
Combine the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Add the chopped mint.  Pour over the watermelon mixture and gently toss until everything is coated.  Garnish with mint sprigs.
