Watermelon salad made with raspberries and mint! So refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day!
Alright, friends, I have to know!
Do you put salt on your watermelon, eat it plain, or add some other type of seasoning?
I’ve always always always put salt on my watermelon. It’s how I grew up eating it and I don’t think I can eat watermelon without it these days!
That said, I do like a little Tajin (affiliate link) sprinkled on there every now and then! It adds such a fun flavor – I usually save the Tajin for pineapple though.
Anyway, today I thought we’d branch out from the usual salted watermelon and go big with a watermelon mint salad recipe!
This one has all of my favorites in it and it’s so darn easy to throw together. You’re going to love this cool and refreshing watermelon salad on a hot summer day!
How to make watermelon salad:
This couldn’t be easier! Start off with your ripe watermelon and grab a small cookie scoop or melon baller (affiliate link) and scoop out balls of watermelon.
Add the watermelon balls to a mixing bowl with some fresh raspberries and blackberries and then sprinkle on a little sugar and a pinch of salt.
Squeeze a lemon over the top.
Stir in some fresh chopped mint leaves and pop this bowl in the fridge.
This watermelon salad tastes best after it’s had a little bit of time to soak up the lemon and mint flavors in the fridge. You just need to give it 30 minutes and it’s ready to eat!
