This fresh salad is great for a light lunch or as an impressive dish to take to a barbecue. The olives give the salad a briny richness and the contrast of the black against the pink looks beautiful. The bright-green basil adds a freshness that makes it perfect for summer.
- Peel the rind off the watermelon and cut into large cubes.
- Combine the watermelon, onions, olives, feta and basil in a large salad bowl. Squeeze over the lime juice.
- Finish by drizzling over the olive oil and balsamic and a fresh grind of black pepper.
