Using the fresh mint growing in my garden, this is a delightful,refreshing summer salad. It's my daughter's recipe.


  1. In large bowl, mix the watermelon cubes, onion slices and mint.
  2. In small bowl or mixing cup, blend dressing ingredients.
  3. Add to watermelon mixture and toss to combine.
  4. Chill for at least two hours.

What an interesting combination of flavors! It was hard to imagine what all of this would taste like coming together, but I must say that my husband is in heaven. He just loves this. It took a minute for this to grow on me, but it was even better the next day. Thanks for such a delightful combination of tastes!!

Thank your daughter, Janice! I have been making this summer salad for years, and it is great!! I suggest seedless watermelon, and I use half vegetable and half olive oil. I think it makes a lighter dressing.

I really enjoyed this refreshing salad NoSpringChicken. It is delicious. All the ingredients blended beautifully to create a special treat. It's fresh and lively, sweet and savory. I didn't have any cider vinegar, so I subed with white balsamic. I also seasoned the salad with a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper (personal preference only). Thank you for sharing this recipe that I will enjoy often.:)
