Instructions

  1. 1Quarter the watermelon lengthwise. Cut each quarter into 2-inch-thick slices. Place on a baking sheet, then brush lightly with olive oil. Set aside.

  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.
