Watermelon-Mint Salad {SRC}

Posted Jul 29 2013 12:00am
I don't know about you all, but I am loving that August is almost here. Mainly because August means we are another month closer till husby comes home but also because that means fall is almost here and you know how much I love that crisp air, fresh apple pie and football season.
In the meantime while we are still all frying our tootsies off in this heat I have a fabulous and fresh salad that will make your mouth water. It's SRC time and this month I was given Renee's blog  Eat Live Blog , a true New England foodie, and as a New Englander myself I was excited to see what she loves to cook and blog about. While I was tempted by her Roasted Tomatillo and Poblano Salsa  or the  Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Fritter's , I landed on a traditional favorite but one that never fails in New England in the summertime... watermelon salad.
I have made a few versions before but sometimes the classics stand out and it's exactly what this Connecticut heat-wave called for. Something about the totally juicy watermelon with the fresh zip of the mint and lime has me reaching for more and more until the bowl is empty. Can you actually have too much watermelon? I seriously doubt it, but if you can, then I absolutely came close. With the double-batch that I made, half went in my belly and half came with me to my family reunion up north. For a 90 degree day with plenty of humidity, you better believe it was right there rivaling the hot dogs and hamburgers.
If you have't had your full share of watermelon already this summer, grab another melon and toss together this fresh and juicy treat. Renee suggests, preparing this salad right before serving as the lime juice will begin to break the watermelon down after a while. Enjoy!
Watermelon-Mint Salad
Servings: 4

4 pounds of rind on watermelon
1/4 cup of chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup of lime juice, around 2 limes

Use a melon baller to scoop watermelon off the rind and add to a large bowl. Chop mint and juice the limes and add to the bowl.
Toss gently using your clean hands. Serve chilled.
