Watermelon Salad with Lemon and Mint

Watermelon with Lemon and Mint

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”  (Leonardo Da Vinci)  Thanks to my good friend Liz Morten at Dovecote Decor for tipping me off to the magical combination of  watermelon, lemon and mint.  Go heavy on the lemon…juice and zest.  Add mint according to your own tastes…gobs of whole  leaves or tiny slivers throughout, and watch a simple bowl of watermelon become positively addictive.

********************************************

4-6 cups fresh, chilled watermelon, cubed

1 large, juicy lemon…zest and juice

fresh mint to taste

Toss all ingredients together and keep chilled until ready to serve…garnish with lemon and mint.

    Wow, I love the pictures on your blog!!! ;-)
    And this recipe inspires me! I have a big slice of watermelon at home – will try it this weekend! ;-) I made a tomato salad with watermelon and some spring onion – very nice combination too!
