Get You Silly, Watermelon Salad!

Stumbled across this great heat buster (yes it’s still sweltering hot in Bombay!) and happy salad on Pinterest- felt I had to share! 



Refreshing with a punch is what I’d call this awesome salad! With the simplest ingredients it’s really easy to put together. Watermelon also happens to be my favorite fruit- and it’s available all thru the year! I’m going to have to try it tonight. Bring on dinnertime!

You’ll need to pull together:

            1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest plus 2 tablespoons juice (from the same lime)

            2 tablespoons brown sugar

            2 tablespoons light rum

            1/4 teaspoon salt

Chilled seedless watermelon ( pick out the seeds!)

            2 tablespoons finely slivered fresh mint leaves


  • In a large bowl, whisk together limejuice, sugar, rum, and salt.
  • Using a melon baller, scoop melon into balls or cut melon into bite-size chunks. Add melon to lime mixture in bowl. Sprinkle with mint and lime zest, and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate, up to 2 hours.
