Savoury Watermelon & Feta Salad
Slightly modifed from BS' in the Kitchen

Marinated Watermelon Slices
8-10 rectangles of watermelon (about 3×4 inches & ½ inch thick)- I made circles
juice of one lemon
4 mint leaves (chopped)
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
½ tbsp honey
2 marinated watermelon slices
4 tsp crumbled feta- added much more-, about a handful
2 mint leaves (chopped) + more for garnish
½ slice cooked bacon (chopped)- added much more- 2 full slices
few small slices of very thinly shaved red onions
balsamic vinegar- I used a balsamic glaze
*I also added a dash of olive oil and salt & pepper to taste.

1. In a ziploc bag, combine watermelon slices and ingredients for marinade. Allow to marinate overnight in the fridge.

2. To make the salad, place a slice of watermelon on the plate, top with 2 teaspoons of crumbled feta, then 1 chopped mint leaf. Place another watermelon slice on top. Top with another 2 teaspoons of crumbled feta, another chopped mint leaf, ½ a slice of chopped bacon, a few red onion shavings, and finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a mint leaf for garnish.
