Melon and Red Onion With Feta and Pine Nuts

“A first course or nice at a brunch buffet from the Junior League of Salt Lake City, Utah. Sounds interesting. Note: This recipe was titled Melon and Red Onion with Feta and Walnuts, but when I read the ingredients and intstructions it said "pine nuts" so I changed the title. Both sound good to me though!”
