Watermelon Salad

This salad is from Nigella and it is DELICIOUS Serves 4

About a kilo or larger piece of watermelon - sliced into large pieces
1 purple onion
2 tablespoons black olives (pitted and sliced)
2 limes
small bunch parsley
small bunch mint
splash of olive oil (I left this out)
100g feta cheese (cubed) I used low fat (It would still be yummy if you left out the cheese)

Squeeze juice of 2 limes over a thinly sliced purple onion (I added 1/2 a teaspoon of sugar) and season with salt and black pepper and leave for 30 minutes or so.

Place sliced watermelon, olives, feta cheese and onion in salad bowl. Top with shredded (not chopped finely) mint and parsley. Mix all ingredients gently (with your hands of course).

Pour over lime juice from onion and pour in a splash of olive oil(I left out the oil and it was still lovely). Mix gently again.
