Watermelon Salad with Mojito Dressing

You guys know I love dessert and that it absolutely is a MUST after my meals, but note that this doesn't always have to mean a decadent slab of cake.

(Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

Sometimes on hot summer days, all I want is a touch of crisp sweetness and there is nothing better than a bit of watermelon or round out a sunny summer meal.

This simple watermelon salad is one of my favorite things to serve when I'm cooking for groups in the summer. Diced sweet ripe watermelon is tossed with a simple dressing of lime juice, torn mint, honey and a dash of salt.

It's easy, gorgeous, and super satisfying.

Watermelons are perfect right now, so take advantage and whip this up asap.
