This refreshing salad is perfect as an appetizer or starter at the dinner table. I’ve had it in mind since I first tried it at one of the cocktail parties of a foodie conference in Miami. I’ve been madly in love with it ever since. Considering the size of my mint plant, I was encouraged to prepare this salad to use some of the fresh leaves. The only thing left to purchase was the cheese and that settled it; one night during the weekend I went to work cutting up watermelon. Did you notice that with only 3 ingredients you can make a super deliciosa starter at your next party; a snack to tide everyone over before serving supper? Be inspired and try this salad for yourself soon! MORE + LESS -
