If there is a fruit that is better than watermelon in the summer, you let me know about it. Juice dripping down your chin, spitting the seeds into the yard, watermelon is the perfect summer food. This summer salad dresses watermelon up just a little bit, without losing any little bit of what makes it refreshing.
Watermelon salad with mint and ginger
1 small watermelon (about four cups of watermelon)
4 coins ginger (one small thumb of ginger, skin removed and sliced)
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup walnut oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Packed 1/4 cup mint
Remove the rind from the watermelon, and chop into small cubes.
Put the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until well blended. You do not want any large pieces of ginger in here. Mix the dressing into the watermelon and stir to combine.
