Spring time brings an abundance of fresh fruits. And one that I look forward to is watermelon. I tried this once at a Vietnamese restaurant and have never been able to forget it. This salad goes great with just about anything – be it a cookout or just as a side with some protein.

  • 1 7-8lb seedless watermelon
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1-1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 3/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chat masala (available at Indian food stores)
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 jalapeño, deseeded and chopped fine (optional)
  • 1 cup Feta cheese (optional)
  1. Chop the watermelon into 1-inch chunks and chill for an hour.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, juiced limes, salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the watermelon of any excess watermelon juice and then pour in the lemon dressing.
  4. Add mint leaves along with the jalapeño and feta cheese (if using) and mix well together.
  5. Serve chilled.
