Instructions

  3. 3In a bowl, whisk together the citrus juices, a pinch of salt, and 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. 4Remove and discard the rinds, then cut the watermelon into chunks and add to a serving bowl. Pour the dressing over the top and toss gently. Top with the feta and mint and toss to coat. Serve right away.
