How do you prepare this easy watermelon salad?
(Complete ingredient amounts and instructions available in the recipe card down below).
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.
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 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.
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).
