Watermelon-Mint fresh & fat-free Salad

Tricia Berry


Had a version of this at a gourmet Country Club golf banquet. Very classy, very easy, low-cal & delish. Everyone asks for the recipe & I'm always asked to bring it to summer get-togethers.

How to Make Watermelon-Mint fresh & fat-free Salad


  1. Mix it all up. Serve or refrigerate for a day. Note: If your meal has no other oils or fat in it, splash a bit of light-flavored olive oil on this salad for better vitamin absorption.
  2. I've made many versions of this, including with other melons or sturdy fruit, as well as chunks of jicama. Use what's sweet & ripe. Smaller amount great with cottage cheese instead of feta for lunch or cool summer dinner.
