RECIPE: Watermelon Mint & Feta Salad

I found this recipe off of pinterest a few summers ago, but just couldn't get myself to actually try it. This weekend (Memorial Day weekend!), we have a party or cookout to be at every single day. I needed something quick and easy that I could either make in bulk OR quickly, each day, to take as a side dish. 
I finally caved and tried this out today and Oh. My. Gosh! I don't know WHY I waited so long! It's absolutely delicious, no cooking involved and takes less than 10 minutes to make this salad. 
I had my three year old son and husband try it out and even they loved it! Give it a try, I promise, it will be a favorite at your table or party.

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
1 dash hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco®) (optional; to taste)
3½ cups cubed watermelon
2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2½ oz.)
3 Tbsp. chopped sweet onion (like Maui or Vidalia)
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1. Combine oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and hot sauce (if desired) in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside.
2. Combine watermelon, cheese, onion, and mint in a large serving bowl.
3. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently to blend.
