Yay for mid-week day trips! Yesterday, I went with my friend Michelle to the Giants-Dodgers game in SF. The weather was absolutely perfect and we had a great time. We kept it simple by taking BART in and bringing a lunch with us. No fuss, no muss. Sometimes that's the best way to go. Same goes for cooking.

So if you're feeling lazy this weekend, try this watermelon salad recipe- it only requires 3 ingredients and a knife. If you want to get a little more elaborate, you can use a fancy cutter or a melon baller but it's not required. Minimal effort, maximum taste- the tartness of the lime juice really complements the sweetness of the watermelon and the coolness of the mint. See for yourself!

Watermelon Salad


1 seedless, chilled fresh watermelon: cubed/balled/or cut into shapes (your choice)
roughly 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint
fresh lime juice


- Cut watermelon into bite-sized chunks, balls or shapes.

- Add in chopped fresh mint (to taste)

- Squeeze some lime juice over the melon and mint. Toss gently. Let the ingredients mingle for a few minutes.

- Enjoy!

    Don't you love Giants stadium? I do.

    And I have all those ingredients at home. If my watermelon isn't bad, I'm going to make this tomorrow.

    Oh, excellent! And I love no muss, no fuss! I also love the little shapes!

    I have a good arugula salad that I use watermelon in. I should post it. Geez, you'd think I have a food blog instead of lifestyle, I post so many recipes. Whatevs. A girl's gotta eat! Alisha and I were just talking about how much we love A Girl and Her Fork!
