Watermelon Berry Summer Salad

Watermelon Berry Summer Salad

Hello there! I know it’s not quite summer time for another couple of months, but I couldn’t help, but post this tasty and easy watermelon and berry salad that’s perfect to eat during the warmer months.

It’s totally refreshing, naturally sweet and tart, and pretty to look at too. Don’t you just love a colourful salad?

Along with the summer fruits, mix in a little bit of rich pure honey, cooling mint, and bright fresh lime juice, and you’ve got a delicious fruit salad that’s lovely to serve as a side dish or healthy dessert.

I hope you enjoy this recipe for Watermelon Berry Summer Salad!

How do you prepare this easy watermelon salad?

(Complete ingredient amounts and instructions available in the recipe card down below).

A quarter seedless watermelon with knife cuts in it with a serrated knife cutting into it.

The “hardest” part is chopping up the watermelon. Everyone has a different way of cutting up one.

Here’s how I chopped up my watermelon:

First I quartered the watermelon lengthwise. Then I take one of the quartered watermelon pieces and sliced the watermelon (just to the rind) to make 1/2 to 1-inch wedges.

I then made three slices lengthwise on both sides of the watermelon (see photo above). Last, I took a knife and sliced in between the rind and the pink flesh to separate the chopped pieces of watermelon from the rind.

Rinsed sliced strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in a metal stainer with a bowl of watermelon pieces behind it.

Then you remove the green leafy tops (hull) from the strawberries and slice them up. Don’t forget to give your berries a rinse under cold water.

Thinly sliced fresh mint, a lime cut in half, and a large knife on a wooden cutting board.

Thinly slice up your fresh mint. TIP: The easiest way is to bunch up your mint leaves into a log and then slice to create thin ribbons.

A glass bowl containing a watermelon and berry salad topped with sliced fresh mint.

Place the fruit into a long bowl, drizzle the honey and lime juice on top, and sprinkle the mint onto the fruit as well. Then gently toss all the ingredients together. Now it’s ready to enjoy (or refrigerate until you are ready to serve).

Can you tell that I’m a fan of spinach salads and homemade dressings?
