It’s warming up here in these parts. A heat wave is moving through right now and pushing temps into the 90s. Therefore cool, refreshing dishes are in demand. It will drop back down to cooler temps next week, and let’s hope May is nice and mild. May is usually our last month of decent weather before the searing summer heat blankets our region. But it’s all good. I love the summer and I’m no stranger to hot, dry heat. As a child I grew up in the desert near Death Valley (in Southern California) – so bring it on. I was at Costco the other day and found organic, fair-trade mini seedless watermelons. Awesome-sauce! They are super delicious and so sweet. I’m thinking this would be a great dish for any summer gathering.
- 1 small watermelon (3½ pounds) - preferably seedless
- 4 cups sliced strawberries
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together. Refrigerate for an hour and serve.
2. You could also add additional fruit or replace the strawberries with the following: honeydew melon, crenshaw melon, cantaloupe, raspberries, or blueberries.

This sounds and looks so refreshing, Amber! It’s rare that we get affordable watermelons up here (the bigger ones generally go for around $13), but I’ll have to check out Costco the next time I’m in town (it’s an hour away) for the smaller ones. Thanks for the tip there, and thanks for the beautiful recipe! Off to pin and share! 😉
Thanks Megan! Whoa, that’s expensive for watermelons! Yikes. Yes, try Costco. I hope they have some you can enjoy. Enjoy the rest of your week.
This looks so refreshing! The health food store I shop at has had large seedless watermelons for $3!!! I’ll have to buy another one for this recipe, we love watermelon 🙂
Thanks Cassidy! What a deal. few years ago we grew watermelons. It was very exciting. We will have to do that again soon – just trying to find a good spot in the yard (here in the new house). Have a great weekend friend. xo

Hi Amber. I picked this as one of my featured favorites at this week’s Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable. You’ve got me salivating for summer. It’s still a month or two away here, but I’m making this recipe as soon as the watermelons ripen!
