This mojito melon salad is probably the simplest recipe I’ve ever posted here. At this point in the summer, when school is starting back, and you’re not quite ready to get back in the kitchen full-time, this is a perfect side dish to toss together and throw in the fridge till you’re ready to serve it.
This salad was part of my summer suppers collaboration with Tag & Tibby, Twin Stripe, and Feast + West. Be sure to check out my intro post for more photos and visit each of these lovely ladies’ blogs for some more fabulous recipes this week! Come back here on Thursday for a fun DIY feature as well!
If you’re feeling a little extra fancy, try using a melon baller to scoop out the watermelon – it makes the dish extra pretty! This was actually the first time I’d ever used a melon baller, and I found it worked much better on the juicy watermelon than the other melon I used for this recipe. Feel free to adjust the flavors to suit your taste, and try it with and without feta to see which you like better!
- 1 small watermelon, cut into small pieces
- 1 small melon (honeydew or other melon)
- Juice of 1-2 limes
- Handful of mint, chopped
- Pinch of salt
- Handful of feta (optional)
- Combine all ingredients except the feta. Let rest in the fridge for a half hour or so to allow the flavors to combine
- Adjust lime, mint, and salt to taste
- Serve topped with feta (optional)
