  1. Peel cucumbers into a striped pattern lengthwise using a vegetable peeler. Slice cucumbers in half lengthwise; cut each half into 1/4-inch slices creating 'half-moon' shapes. Combine cucumbers, watermelon, and red onion in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk rice vinegar, white wine vinegar, and lime juice together in a bowl; add mint. Muddle the mint by vigorously stirring and pressing the leaves with a spoon until they look bruised but aren't falling apart. Remove and discard mint leaves.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over salad and gently toss. Sprinkle feta cheese over salad; toss gently.

Without the feta cheese, this salad would have easily been 5 stars. The blend of sweet, cool, sharp, and tangy was perfect... except for the feta, which clashed with the other ingredients. I like feta with watermelon or with cucumber, but not with lime, apparently. Next time, I will leave the feta out and spike the dressing with a pinch of cayenne and a few cilantro leaves.

No need to discard the mint leaves, they add a splash of color! Between the vinegars and lime juice, the sweetness of the watermelon is cut down so even some none watermelon people might enjoy this! (I did, anyway!)This would be a great picnic salad!
