Watermelon Salad

This salad is so incredibly refreshing on a hot summer day.  You may be put off by the ingredients initially, but trust me, it is sooo good.  It’s savory and it’s sweet all in one.  I’ve had this thing lately for mint.  I just crave it.  Through this craving of mine I’ve discovered how amazing mint is with vegetables.  Try my Marinated Zucchini with Mint.  It’s awesome.  You’ll have to scroll down to the bottom of the page because this posting has a slue of recipes on it.   But while you’re on there, check out my herbed rubbed pitas.  Again, I use mint.  I’m telling ya, mint is incredible!
