A few weeks ago I made this melon salad based on this recipe and absolutely loved it! I have a slight obsession with mint anyway, but it never occurred to me to mix fresh mint with fruit! Come to find out, it’s really, really good! I decided to simplify things a fews weeks ago and just try a watermelon and mint mix, and let me tell you: it did not disappoint! This dish is refreshing and tasty; it’s the perfect summer picnic dish too!
Not to mention… two ingredients! That’s it! (The original recipe calls for honey, too but I think the watermelon is sweet enough on its own.) By the way, this recipe was really just an excuse to bust out my melon baller – I love that thing! Do you have one?
Simply scoop the watermelon and sprinkle the mint! Ta da!
If you really want to get fancy you could soak the watermelon pieces in rum, add a little lime and call this a mojito watermelon salad! Definitely let me know if you make this, I think you’ll like it!
Do you like mint? Have you ever made a melon salad?
