Here’s to watermelon season! I had had a similar salad on my list for a while now, and my father-in-law ended up making this for dinner last week. It is mighty tasty! The sweet-salty combo is always a winner in my book 🙂 This salad is a great refreshing summery salad, and with fresh mint…it just is wonderful.
Also, afterwards I thought this would be great for a 4th of July side salad…add some blueberries, and VOILA!
