Directions

  1. Place peppercorns on chopping block. Using the bottom of a heavy saucepan, press firmly, into a downward motion and crush peppercorns into a semi-coarse texture.
  2. Combine ground peppercorns with finely chopped mint. In a large bowl, toss spice mixture gently but thoroughly with watermelon cubes.
  3. Spoon into 4 individual serving glasses or bowls. Serve chilled, garnished with a fresh mint leaf.
Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • This is a tasty salad for a hot day.
  • Use this same recipe to prepare other types of melon, such as cantaloupe or honeydew.
  • For something different, try swapping out the mint for chopped fresh basil. Add 2 tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese for something a little more savory or 2 tablespoons toasted sunflower kernels for a little more crunch.
