½ red onion, sliced thinly
juice of 2 limes
½ small watermelon
200g fetta, broken into large chunks
½ cup mint leaves

Combine onion and lime juice in a medium bowl and marinate 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, remove rind and seeds from watermelon and cut into large chunks about 3cm x 3cm.

Arrange watermelon on a large platter with the drained onion, fetta and half of the mint leaves.

Toast the pepitas in a small non-stick frying pan until golden brown and fragrant.

Sprinkle half the pepitas over the salad.

Top with the onion juices, olive oil, reserved mint and plenty of black pepper.
