Continuing the mojito theme, I’ve got a salad with nothing more refreshing than watermelon.  I’m on a watermelon kick lately and rightly so because it’s been over 80 degrees this past weekend!

This salad brings together the refreshing flavors of sweet watermelon, fresh mint, and tangy lime.  It’s perfect for a summer picnic and easy enough to double or triple the recipe to bring to a potluck or barbecue.

It TOTALLY hits the spot.
