Summer is the best time to eat those lovely fresh salads, but who wants to spend a ton of time in the kitchen when the sun is shining and the grass is calling? Not me, which is why this salad is a little piece of heaven. It is so fast and easy to make, and tastes so fresh.
I used to have a lot of fresh mint that grew wildly in my yard. I loved it. Pick a sprig and add it to this or that. Freshen up a drink, or make a topping for lamb. Now I have to buy it. So sad. But this salad makes the $2.59 well worth it.
When I was grocery shopping I saw mini watermelons on sale, and couldn’t help myself. But watermelon of any kind will work.
- 1 mini watermelon (or about 4 cups of watermelon chunks
- 1 cup jicama peeled and diced
- 1 Tbs fresh mint leaves chopped small
