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.
