Watermelon salad

--“Of course I know the place! Are you here for business? What do you do? No, nothing for me. I love cars and people, not numbers and desks…”--

Monica has posted this recipe (thanks!) in response to my Watermelon post. Here’s the English translation. I have most ingredients available. I certainly will try!

Watermelon salad (serves 8)

1 small red onion
small bunch of fresh parsley
juice from 2 to 4 limes
fresh mint, chopped
3 to 4 table spoons olive oil
1,5 kg sweet ripe watermelon
100 g black olives (stones removed)
250g feta
black pepper
salt to taste

1. Peel the onion and cut it in halves. Cut the halves in very thin half-moons, put them in a bowl and add the lime juice.
2. Remove the skin and seeds from the watermelon and cut it in pieces (approx. 4cm). Put the pieces in a large bowl.
3. Cut feta in pieces and add to the watermelon.
4. Tear the parsley in pieces and add them to the watermelon and feta. Add the chopped mint.
5. Add the onions with lime juice, olives and oil and gently mix the salad with your hands so that the pieces of watermelon and feta don’t break.
6. Add pepper (and salt if you wish).

Timeline: 1984 – I’d gotten a boyfriend! I think I was the first in my class to have a boyfriend. It was a boy from the “parallel” class. I lived far from school and he travelled to see me. It lasted several months (we had a very slow start), but we did not have much in common or rather – we tried to date, but what we should have done is just play together. I have tried to find him lately (on, but no results. After him I did not date anyone until I was 17.
