Amanda's Favorite Minty Watermelon Salad

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 5 mins

I started making this for my only niece (Amanda) when she was little and she would come and spend a couple of weeks with us in the summer. We live 10 miles away from one of the leading mint producers in Michigan, so when you have access to such fresh mint, you come up with recipes to showcase it. It is easily adaptable to other fruits too, add your favorites along with the watermelon. Yummm!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chunk watermelon, hull and half strawberries and half grapes.
  2. For syrup: In small saucepan combine sugar, water, mint and ginger. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes to thicken slightly. Set aside to cool.
  3. Put all the fruit in a large bowl and add syrup mixture. Toss to coat.
  4. Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.
