Take a break from the heat of summer with a cool and refreshing salad.

Just a few ingredients before you can put those aching feet up.

  • seedless watermelon, cubed
  • jicama, peeled and sliced into match sticks
  • 1/2 the juice of a lime (or use a whole key lime)
  • fresh mint leaves, chiffonade

Toss the watermelon and jicama in a bowl.  You want less than half of the salad to be jicama, you can change it to your taste though.

Lime juice is poured over the salad, toss gently.

Garnish with fresh mint and enjoy!

Doing anything for the 4th of July?
