Prepare rice according to package directions. Allow to cool completely.
Whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
Add rice to bowl with dressing and stir to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Transfer rice to a serving platter. Lay beet slices down one side of rice. Lay watermelon slices down opposite side. Top with feta, olives, red onion and mint. Garnish with walnuts.
Substitute capers for olives, if preferred.
To diminish the “raw” flavor of onions, soak them in ice water for at least 5 minutes before using them in your recipe.
Feel free to use roasted, boiled, steamed or grilled beets in this recipe.
