Watermelon and Mint Salad

Happy Summer Solstice! I for one will be cheers’ing (I’m sure that should be a correct verb) our longest day of the year tonight. We’ve had scorching temps here in Colorado, but luckily, I’ve found the most awesome way to cool down when we can’t hit the mountains or local pool.Watermelon and mint make an incredibly refreshing combination, and both are natural diuretics, meaning they will help flush excess water from your system. Hey, anything to help with a flat tummy in all that skimpy summer wear!

The Perfect Summer Match

The number of treat choices made with this pair of summer favorites are plentiful. The best part of the three ideas here is that none require measuring; it way too hot to bother with that. I’m all about simplicity, especially as the thermometer rises!

Mix watermelon and chopped mint together with feta cheese crumbles for a refreshing salad, perfect as a snack or side dish. I tossed this one in a large plastic container perfect to take camping!

Alternatively, toss watermelon and mint in the blender with one cup of organic, full-fat plain yogurt.

Once mixed, you can enjoy as a smoothie.

Or pour into popsicle molds for a yummy frozen treat!

Happy summer, friends! Cheers to long, hot days and cool, refreshing treats.

What’s your most refreshing summer combination?
