WATERMELON SALAD



Try this. You will love it. I promise! Even if you are not a huge watermelon fan (like me) you will love this salad. I made it twice last week, and I think I will make it again this week, it is that good.

It is light and refreshing, great on these wonderful summer days. The blueberries and watermelon are dressed with a  bright citrus and mint dressing. Make plenty so you have some for breakfast the next day.

                                                      WATERMELON SALAD

Bring 1/4 cup each, sugar and water to a simmer in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add 3 mint springs and steep 10 minutes. Discard the mint.
Add the zest and juice of 1 lemon and a pinch of salt.

Toss with 2 cups blueberries and 3 cups cubed watermelon.

Let stand 15 minutes. Top with chopped mint.
