This salad serves refreshment with a slight kick thanks to the piquant onions.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Serves 4 to 5

Ingredients
FOR THE VINAIGRETTE
1 tablespoon Sriracha
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

FOR THE SALAD
4 cups seedless watermelon, cut in bite-sized cubes
1 medium red onion, finely sliced
1 cup mixed greens
1 handful squash seeds, roasted
1⁄4 cup feta cheese
small bunch of mint leaves

Procedure
FOR THE VINAIGRETTE
Using a spatula, mix all ingredients until uniformly combined. Set aside. An easier way is to add all the ingredients in a squeeze bottle and shake to incorporate the vinaigrette.

FOR THE SALAD
Add the watermelon, finely sliced red onions, mixed greens, and squash seeds into the bowl and crumble over feta cheese. Finish by roughly tearing the mint leaves over the salad. Serve with the vinaigrette.
