Watermelon and feta salad

This was a tasty and refreshing salad to eat with our dinner on this very hot evening. It was a nice combination of juicy watermelon (from a local farmer) and salty feta. I love the combination of sweet and salty and this salad really touched on both of those tastes. Plus it has some of my other favorite things like balsamic vinegar and fresh mint. The below recipe is enough for one side salad, so adjust this recipe for the amount and number of people you are serving.

Watermelon and feta salad
1 cup of cubed watermelon
1 heaping tablespoon crumbled feta
a few pieces of very thinly sliced red onion
2-3 mint leaves, thinly sliced
scant 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
dash of sea salt

In a small saucepan, heat the balsamic vinegar and salt over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer and continue cooking until it reduces by about half. Add the remaining ingredients to a bowl and toss together. Refrigerate until the vinegar is ready. Then drizzle with the reduced vinegar while it is still warm and serve.
