It's really the simplest fruit salad in the world and the flavor combination is very good. It's from Gourmet magazine.


  1. Trim the rind of the watermelon.
  2. Discard the seeds and cut it into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Place in a large bowl.
  4. Peel the mangoes and remove the pits.
  5. Cut into 1-inch pieces and add to watermelon.
  6. Toss with lime juice, zest, and sugar.

Interesting recipe. I think the lime juice really mutes the flavor of the mango though.

Incredible! This recipe was an explosion of flavor in your mouth. I wasn't expecting anything unusal when I took a bite of it is just mango and watermelon but adding the lime juice, zest and sugar made an incredible flavor. I made it for our annual Memorial Day bbq and it was so interesting to watch people's faces as they tasted it. It took only a couple of seconds for it to register on their faces. The only thing that I did differently was to use Splenda instead of sugar. I will give it a 5* rating and I rarely do that! Excellent!

This was a great dessert -- light, refreshing, and such a good mix of flavors. It was easy to make, and the combination of these fruits made a salad the whole family raved about. I'll certainly make it again. Thanks!
