Watermelon Sald with Rum and Mint

Yesterday we went to a Mexican food themed picnic. I wanted to bring a fruit salad that would compliment this theme and found the perfect low calorie sweet treat.

Everyday Food's recipe for Watermelon Salad with Rum and Mint was a light sweet salad with just the right amount of zing. It went so fast I didn't even get time to snap a photo.

Watermelon Salad with Rum and Mint:
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest plus 2 tablespoons juice (from 1 lime)
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light rum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6-pound piece chilled seedless watermelon
  • 2 tablespoons slivered fresh mint leaves
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, sugar, rum, and salt.
  2. Using a melon baller, scoop melon into balls (you'll get about 10 cups), or cut melon into bite-size chunks. Add melon to lime mixture in bowl. Sprinkle with mint and lime zest, and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate, up to 2 hours.
