And now for something completely different.
Oh, Food & Wine, how I love thee, even in my animal-product-less-ness. I do. I can’t help myself.
Watermelon Salad with Mint and Lime
TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
- 8 cups seedless watermelon chunks (1 inch), from a 6-pound melon
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup mint leaves, torn
In a large bowl, toss the watermelon with the lime juice and cayenne. Fold in the mint leaves, season with salt and serve.
4aux4oodie notes: The original recipe suggests making this ahead of time. I do not. I can always tell when watermelon has been sitting. It should be fresh and absolutely glistening with juice and making it nearly impossible to resist. Do this one within a couple of hours of serving. Please.
