Okay, so this one is a killer. I'm not sure where I picked this one up, but it is a winner every time. Cold watermelon is refreshing on a hot summer night, but the honey, lime and mint makes this over-the-top. And, no, we can't grow watermelons very well in Colorado gardens. But I do have a surplus of mint.
- Watermelon, chilled, cut into large chunks
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- (So basically a 1:1 ratio of honey and lime, you can make more or less)
- Handful of fresh mint, chopped
Mix honey and lime together in a small cup or bowl. Arrange your watermelon on a tray or bowl. Sprinkle mint on top. Drizzle on top of the watermelon. Whoa-la.
To make it extra pretty, I sometimes add edible flower petals--blue bachelor buttons.
