Watermelon and Feta Salad with Lime Vinaigrette

This salad is so refreshing!  It's a great starter to any summer meal.  The cool, sweet watermelon and the salty feta create a match made in heaven.  Combined with the zing of red onion and lime, and garnished with a chiffonade of fresh mint - a summer salad doesn't get much better!  My kids love the watermelon/feta combination and it's completely palate pleasing for adults too.  Enjoy this taste bud tantalizing dish!

La Recette:
 4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
2 cups feta cheese, cubed
1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint, chiffonade 

1 teaspoon shallot, minced
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons champagne vinegar (or any white wine vinegar)
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon agave nectar or maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste

-The salad serves four so place a cup of cubed watermelon in each bowl.  Next arrange the 1/2 cup of feta in each of the four bowls and throw on a few slices of the thinly sliced red onion.
-For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk vigorously until well combined - about 15-20 seconds.  Drizzle the dressing over each salad and garnish with the mint chiffonade.
