Watermelon happiness.

Watermelon.  Does anything say summer more?

Sometimes though the occasion calls for something a little less casual than a seed spitting contest.  For those occasions, here’s a refreshing, grownup way to get your watermelon.

Salad

  • 1 small organic watermelon
  • 1 bunch organic radishes
  • 2 large field cucumbers or 1 regular english (english are nice because you can leave on the skin, you may want to peel the field variety)
  • handful of fresh mint & basil to taste
  • Optional – Chopped jicama or fennel. For an extra bite serve on top of fresh arugula or watercress.

Dressing:

  • 1/4c olive oil
  • juice of 1 (organic) lemon
  • sea salt and garlic powder (or minced fresh) to taste
  • fresh ground pepper if desired

Chop the cucumber and watermelon into approx. the same size cubes. Thinly slice radishes (I use a mandolin). Chop/tear all herbs. Mix and pour dressing on top!

Happy summer!
