Grishma's notes for this recipe:
Watermelon Mozzarella salad is very easy to make, flavorful and crowd pleasing. It is perfect for your BBQ parties or any other summer gatherings.
The original recipe uses cantaloupe but I really did not enjoy the flavors. But when I tried it with cold watermelon, I fell in love with it. The magic is all in the zesty salad dressing! It helps to bring out the flavors of watermelon and marinates Mozzarella as well.

And believe me it is very refreshing, light and delicious. Now we prefer to eat watermelon this way only!

What a refreshing and light appetizer! This is perfect to munch on by the pool or relaxing at the park. I really enjoyed the crushed red pepper in this recipe - it kind of gives it a surprise bite.


Put watermelon cubes and mozzarella in a serving bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together honey, freshly squeezed lemon juice, chopped mint, salt, and crushed red pepper.
Pour dressing over the melon and mozzarella then toss to combine. Serve immediately.
Enjoy!! I guarantee this will surely please you and your family.

Can you make this the night before? I'm going on a boat outing and need to bring appetizers. This looks good, but the "serve immediately" makes me nervous!
