What’s more American than Watermelon? Ok ok, hotdogs, baseball, etc. But, this healthy salad feels decadent and gourmet, but it simple and delicious. And to me, watermelon just feels like summer, especially July 4th. If you’re looking for an easy potluck salad that isn’t boring for your holiday activities – this is a winner.
Honestly, the hardest part of this salad is chopping the watermelon. But you could buy pre-chopped and make this a piece of cake. I used mint from my container garden, so its fresh and beautifully green. I have also made this salad with basil, so if you don’t mint on hand, definitely try the basil – its sweet and flavorful.
I hope you’ll love this as much as I do! Enjoy!
